Paw in the Surgery

The illustrator Chinlun Lee views her dog, Paw, as a member of the family. From 1997 to 1999, Lee went to Britain to further her education, leaving her husband and her dog behind in Taiwan, where they spent day after day in an animal hospital. Missing her family, Lee created this illustrated work while she was abroad. When she finished her studies, she came home with it. Back in Taiwan, Lee published one book after another, often featuring Paw. Sadly, Paw and Little Ling, another of Lee’s dogs, passed away in 2004. The book, which is 32 pages long, was thus created and published when Lee was missing her dog. The book takes an amusing and irreverent look at veterinarians and animal hospitals from a dog’s point of view.

Paw在醫院裡

★ 獲選2005年中小學優良課外讀物

Paw是李瑾倫的小狗,她視為家人。
1997到1999年瑾倫在英國求學期間,藉由繪畫,抒發她對在家鄉的丈夫及小狗Paw的思念。學業完成後,這本繪本被她帶回家中珍藏。
回台灣後,李瑾倫陸續出版了《動物醫院39號》(大塊出版)、《好乖的Paw》(和英出版),Paw都被畫入書中,甚至當起主角,可惜的是2004年年底,Paw和另一隻小狗小苓相繼離開人世,瑾倫遭逢傷痛。這本書在思念時完成,也在思念時出版。全書以輕鬆有趣的角度,從小狗的眼中看見動物醫生和動物醫院的鉅細靡遺。
