The impeccably designed book Harold's Hungry Eyes is an illustrated story about a dog with hungry eyes who sets out on an urban odyssey. When Harold finds himself LOST and ALONE for the first time on the streets, he begins a rite of passage that takes him away from the comforts of sheltered domestic life and into the unfamiliar, chaotic excitement of the big city.
Using visual metaphors and humour, the tale invites child and adult readers alike to exercise their associative thinking skills, adding substantial educational value to this entertaining story: in confronting the wild outside world, Harold is forced to expand his established mental structures (those of his comfort zone) and rely completely on intuition and instinct in order to resolve the conflict by finding his way back to the home he loves. But when he does return, home will never be the same.
