Description
We admit it—even though we know this illustrated anthology of nine stories is intended for readers 8 to 12, we find we can't stop sneaking a few moments ourselves to read these hilarious and heartwarming tales of life with dogs. Wonderfully portrayed by such leading children's authors as Caldecott Honoree Jon J Muth, Newbery Honorees Ann Martin and Margarita Engle, and PEN/Norma Klein Award winner Valerie Hobbs, as well as by Mark Teague, Thacher Hurd, Matt de la Peña, Pam Muñoz Ryan, and Wendy Orr—several of whom also provide their own illustrations—here are pups heroic and troublesome, most with young owners who learn what it means to love and to be loved by a dog.

"These amusing tales, all of them strong and distinct, total up to a nice, easily accessible package that will be a hit with dog lovers."—Kirkus Reviews

"The depth of emotion felt by canines and their owners will be universally understood."—Publishers Weekly
