Elisha Cooper, "Homer"

At the heart of many families we find the love of a loyal pet. In this beautifully illustrated book we meet Homer an old dog who realizes there’s nothing better than observing the world and being surrounded by family and love.

"An old dog sits on a porch looking over a beach and watches as the other dogs in the family head out for the day, then the children, then the parents. Then he welcomes them back. Then he follows them inside. That’s it. For this book, I drew on childhood animals (I had a dog named Homer), and a family house on the shore. I thought how sitting in one spot and
observing the world, and being surrounded by family and love is not a bad place to be." --Elisha Cooper
