They made a strange pair: one giant dog and one slight girl. 

When most people think of Emily Dickinson, they picture a thin, sad-looking woman dressed in white, living alone in a big house, scribbling poems on scraps of paper.

But Emily was not alone. Her dog, Carlo--a large, floppy, drooly Newfoundland--was her constant companion, her "shaggy ally" in the world. Together Emily and Carlo explored the woods and town around them, visiting friends and enjoying each other's company.

Marty Rhodes Figley's lyrical text and Catherine Stock's luminous art create a fresh look at this well-know, but seldom understood, American poet.
