Using a similar storytelling style that crosses realism with fantasy, the author-illustrator duo of What's Missing returns with a story that sheds light to the plight of stray animals using humour and outrageous illustrations.
A little stray dog appeared on the bus. Riding the bus was cute when it was still a puppy and adorable. When it got bigger however, it was no longer as "lovable" and was quickly shoo'ed away from the bus, leaving it to wander the streets on its own.
There have also been sounds of footsteps on roofs. Thefts were frequent, but no one has seen the thief. It's been causing quite the stir. Rumour was that there's been a big dog sighting every time, and thus the legend of the Roof Dog began...
Featuring the same bold, colourful, exaggerated illustrations of nostalgic Taiwan streetscape as What's Missing, this is an exciting story that makes young readers think thoughtfully about the long-standing problem of stray animals in the country.
