Legendary singer Billie Holiday owned several dogs, but her favorite was a boxer named Mister. Newton's stylish illustrations keep the simply told story focused on the loving bond between the two. An Author's Note deals more directly with the singer's troubled life, and includes a little-known photo of Mister and Lady Day. Full color.
