About The Book
When a brother and sister go for a walk, their imaginations turn the ordinary into the extraordinary in this sweet and whimsical picture book.
Pup is pulling, Maisie is pushing, and Jonah is looking and listening as the three of them set off on their daily dog walk. But what begins as a chore becomes an unexpected celebration of imagination as their neighborhood transforms. Maisie sees butterfly; Jonah sees a popsicle garden! Maisie sees the postman; Jonah sees a sky slide! And…is that…a tree of cats?!
Differences are what brings richness to the everyday in gorgeous homage to the wonders of the world around us—and the worlds we can create—if only we stop to look and listen.

Raves and Reviews
Siblings dream up extraordinary sights while walking their dog.
A warm, quiet ode to imagination.
– Kirkus Reviews, STARRED, January 1, 2021
When Mom asks Maisie to walk their dog, Tink, Maisie's brother, Jonah, who uses a wheelchair, says, “Me too . . . Walk me.” They set off on a fanciful journey to see what’s disguised in the landscape around them. Simple text and soft washes of color conceived digitally with pencil illustrate the adorable, happy kids, happy dog, and happy walk. Everyone wins in this imaginative daytime walking adventure.
