Synopsis

Synopsis

A deft (and dog-loving) poet teams up with a Caldecott-winning artist in a fun, fetching haiku collection for anyone who's ever loved a dog.

A corgi dozes with paws in the air. A bloodhound burrows into a scent. A border collie tracks a herd of cows. A wagging spaniel leaps for joy. In simple, charming haiku, poet Michael J. Rosen portrays twenty beloved dog breeds, from the pug to the Dalmatian to the golden retriever. Complete with interesting facts about each breed and illustrated with Mary Azarian's striking woodcuts, this keepsake volume is sure to set any dog lover's tail a-wagging.
Praise

Praise

Pooches large and small, common and rare abound in this glorious collection of haiku...brilliant in every way: poetically, visually-the Tao of dogginess!
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Each poem is spot-on both in terms of poetic excellence and insight into unique characteristics of the diverse canines...truly, a dog treat to be savored.
