More About Cynthia Rylant


Cynthia Rylant As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, "hooked on great writing... I didn't know about this part of me until I went to college-didn't know I loved beautiful stories." And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success.
Since that night, Rylant hasn't stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. "I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who don't get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty."
She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.


Cynthia Rylant currently resides in Portland, in the state of Oregon. Cynthia Rylant was born in 1967.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dog Heaven?

Helped with healing  Mar 23, 2007
This book was sent to me by the specialty veterinary hospital where my beloved dog died. They used the book as a sympathy card of sorts, and wrote personal notes to us expressing condolences. The book is so sweet and touching-I think it would be excellent in helping a child deal with pet loss, because it certainly helped this forty-something year old.
 
A dear, dear book for those who've lost their best friends  Mar 22, 2007
What a comfort this book is for people who have lost their beloved pets. My dad read it every night after Pie the black lab died and it just helps to think of dogs in a better place, enjoying their every whim. My mom thinks veterinarians should stock it.
 
A comforting tear-jerker  Mar 21, 2007
I came across this book several years ago when a friend bought it for another friend. Since then I've given it (or "Cat Heaven") to everyone I know when they lose a pet. Even after having read it many times, it's guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes. It does such a wonderful job of describing just how doggie heaven should be, and many folks I've given it too have told me that it brought them a lot of comfort. I would give this book 10 stars if I could.
 
Dog Heaven  Mar 8, 2007
A perfect book for anyone of any age who had loved a dog.
 
For anyone who suffers the loss of a dear old dog  Feb 27, 2007
This is the book that I buy for friends when they lose a beloved dog. It's not just for kids. It's so sweet, and comforting and lovely. I HIGHLY recommend it! I bought if for my two sons when we lost our precious old dog.
