When Jack Goes Out
Title: When Jack Goes Out
Author: Pat Schories
Jack the dog plays happily in his backyard with visitors from outer space, but is not so sure that he wants to go home with them.
When the ‘Night Visitors’ return, they want to take Jack home with them. Will they succeed? The Night Visitors are back. The family doesn’t know they’ve come. But their dog, Jack, does. Once they land, the space creatures unhook Jack’s leash. They have a grand time playing with Jack and when it’s time to return to their ship, they try to take Jack with them. Fortunately, Jack’s collar is not built for space travel! This compelling, easy-to-follow, wordless picture book introduces pre-literate children to elements of story – such as character, setting, and action – and invites them to read the book on their own.
