Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Tail-wagging hilarity thats simply doggone funny — and a perfect

Fathers Day gift." — KIRKUS REVIEWS

Dad pretends to be human, but the kids know otherwise. Between first-thing-in-the morning scratching, fetching the paper, snacking, lying around for hours, and even the occasional pit stop behind a tree, the evidence is clear. But so are their fathers steadfast love and loyalty. Arent those the best things about dads and dogs alike? Elizabeth Bluemles amusing, affectionate text and Randy Cecils delightful illustrations create the ultimate tribute to proud papas everywhere —

an irresistible story readers will beg for again and again.

Synopsis:

This lyrical picture book is brimming with delightful pirate antics and just the right dose of father-and-son love.

About the Author

ELIZABETH BLUEMLE co-owns the Flying Pig Bookstore in Charlotte, Vermont, with stand-up comedian Josie Leavitt. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Writing for Children from Vermont College. MY FATHER THE DOG is pure fiction, she says. "This book is not based on my very own father. Honest, Dad, its not."

RANDY CECIL is the illustrator of numerous books for children, including WE'VE ALL GOT BELLY BUTTONS! by David Martin, AND HERE'S TO YOU! by David Elliott, and ONE IS A SNAIL, TEN IS A CRAB by April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre.
