Paperboy (The) - Cover
Paperboy (The)
Dav Pilkey, Scholastic Inc. New York, 1996
A young African American boy and his dog rise before the sun every day. They eat breakfast together and set out in the dark with the heavy red bag of papers. The boy knows the route very well so he thinks about other things, large and small. His dog knows which cats are for growling at and which trees are for sniffing. This is the time when they are both the happiest, when the world is still fast asleep. They ride home as the sun rises and crawl back into bed for a while. A Caldecott Honor Book.
