Surfer Dog

by Eric Walters, illustrated by Eugenie Fernandes

tagged: friendship, water sports, dogs
Description

What is the true meaning of friendship? Follow along as a boy meets up with his friend—a dog who faithfully waits for him every day so they can ride out to the beach together to surf. The boy doesn't own the dog and he doesn't know who does, but their daily routine has created a special bond. Award-winning author Eric Walters navigates the waters of a unique friendship alongside the vibrant illustrations of Eugenie Fernandes, who brings the bumpy roads, rugged beach paths and rolling waves of the tropics to life.

Sometimes the most poignant relationships in a child's life are the ones between friends.
