Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the first morning of the world, a man and a dog forged a solid friendship. Ever since, in cultures all around the globe, dogs have been our faithful companions — inseparable, dependable, loyal, and loving.

Gerald and Loretta Hausman retell thirteen tales that capture the spirit of our beloved friend, the many-faceted dog. Here are trickster dogs, like the well-meaning but forgetful husky who accidentally brought Death to the world. Here are guardian dogs, like the wolfhound who was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect his master's baby. Here are super dogs, like the poodle who could speak four languages, catch bullets with his teeth, and change shape. Here, too, is the story of that first man and dog and the promises they made — and many more.

The Hausmans beautifully evoke the varied cultures that nourished each tale — from that of the Nyanga people of Africa to that of the Ainu of Japan and the Siberian Eskimos of Unisak — and their rich storytelling style makes each an irresistible read-aloud. Barry Moser's brilliant watercolors gracefully pay homage to thirteen different breeds. So, dip into these pages and enjoy finding your own best friend — in the mythic proportions every dog deserves.

Synopsis:

An American Book Award-winning artist pays tribute to heroic dogs around the world, in this collection of traditional tales arranged in such categories as "The Trickster Dog, " "The Enchanted Dog, " and "The Super Dog." Full color.
