Home Alone

Barbara Nascimbeni

A charming storybook for children about a happy dog left home alone and the hilarious mayhem he creates.

How much trouble can a cute, little dog get into when he’s left alone at home all day? With the human out to work, this pup knows how to live! He rides scooters, makes delicious sandwiches, and plays dress-up in fabulous outfits. It turns out the most important thing is to clean up after all the chaos he’s created.

Home Alone is a fun story with adorable illustrations. Anyone who has ever wondered what dogs do all day will love reading this again and again.


A stylish day-in-the-life account of a peppy pup who knows how to entertain herself.

Lovely stylized illustrations [are] reminiscent of mid-20th-century modern graphics… A grand match of dry humor and sweet illustrative delivery.
