The Dog Who Found Sorrow is a beautiful, resonant picture book about sadness and healing, suitable for all ages.

It tells the story of a dog who, waking to find his hometown covered in thick black clouds, goes out in search of the source of sorrow. It’s an intrepid quest, a parable about hope, and a tonic for our sorrowful times. The book is written by Rūta Briede, a leading illustrator and instructor at the Latvian Academy of Arts, illustrated by Elīna Brasliņa.

The book is beautifully produced, with a hardcover and dust-jacket.
