A poignant picture book about a young girl, who in the face of her parents' divorce, turns to the one constant in her life-her dog Fred.



Sometimes I live with my mom. Sometimes I live with my dad. But Fred stays with me.



Told from the point of view of a young child whose parents are divorced, Fred Stays with Me follows a girl and her dog, Fred, from one parent's house to the other's, giving her a sense of continuity and stability. With a simple text and childlike language, the story expresses and addresses a child's concerns, highlights the friendship between child and pet, presents a common ground for the parents, and resolves conflict in a positive way. Tricia Tusa's charming and whimsical artwork adds a light, happy feel to this poignant--but not overly sentimental--story.
