Looking Out for Sarah
Written and illustrated by Glenna Lang

Charlesbridge Publishing

The story of Sarah and her guide dog Perry follows these best friends through a day in their lives. Perry, like all Labrador retrievers, is mellow and friendly, likes to chase balls, and has a talent for finding food. But he always takes his job of looking out for Sarah very seriously. Through Perry’s eyes, we see Sarah’s busy life as a musician and teacher, her three-hundred mile walk to raise awareness about guide dogs, and Perry’s lovable and sometimes humorous nature.

This book is based on a real guide dog named Perry and his real owner, Sarah Gregory Smith.
