From the publisher:

The fifth volume in the lavishly illustrated, award-winning series of wordless wildlife graphic novels, each depicting a day in the life of a different wild animal, told through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in illustration.

A loyal Australian hunting dog finds himself alone in the outback when his master is killed by a poisonous snake. He must venture across the dangerous outback to find his way home again.

School Library Journal:

[This] wordless graphic novel follows the harrowing journey of a hunting mastiff who must traverse the Australian outback alone after his owner is attacked and killed by a poisonous snake. In his quest to get home to his remaining human family, the mastiff hunts for food and defends himself against aggressive wildlife, including hostile snakes and a pack of ravenous dingoes. Interspersed with the mastiff's story are panels in which platypuses, echidnas, koalas, and other Australian wildlife care for their young and hide from predators. Evoking a nature documentary, this fifth book in the "Love" series uses detailed sequential storytelling to immerse readers in the mastiff's trek. Bertolucci's rich, earthy tones; lively action sequences; and intricate portrayals of animals in their habitats vividly capture the symbiosis and the occasional brutality of Australia's wilderness. VERDICT: Middle grade readers interested in nature and comfortable with the story's realistic portrayal of the animal kingdom will be fascinated.
