Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone will want to bring home the paperback version of this witty little dog book, which sold over 145,000 copies in hardcover. This charming collection teams up dog portraits by Valerie Shaff with verse by humorist Roy Blount Jr., to give us an original and entertaining portrayal of what dogs really think. Who hasn't looked into a dog's eyes and wondered what's going on in that furry head? What do dogs make of us? The answers are found in this hilarious book of 50 evocative canine countenances giving voice to the inner dog. Roy Blount's verses--written from the dog's point of view--tell us the meaning of the quizzical expressions and soulful looks Valerie Shaff's camera catches so well: What does that mean, 'expensive shoe'?/ I ate it because it smelled like you. From adorable Dalmatian pups to mournful hounds to soulful setters, each dog's voice conveys the befuddlement, heartbreak, and simple joys of a dog's life.
