Ray Lucky AuthorEverybody needs a support system. In Mary Lyn Ray’s story about the important connection between an author and her dog, we learn that inspiration and encouragement don’t always have to come from fellow humans. A Lucky Author Has a Dog introduces young readers to how authors write. It demonstrates their methods, setbacks, and habits. Henry illustrates the author’s shaggy dog with personality and movement. This book is a useful resource for children who like to write, or for a career day presentation.
