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

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.
