Synopses & Reviews
Stephen Hunecks beloved black Labrador, Sally, has spawned a whole series of successful childrens books, as well as woodcut prints, mugs, T-shirts, stationery, sculpture, tote bags, and even rugs, but the genesis of this world was his now-classic first book, My Dogs Brain.
In it, Huneck illustrates the predicaments, pleasures, and appetites that make up a dogs life, whether its sleeping on the couch, stealing a lick from an ice cream cone, or barking for no good reason.
The new smaller trim, a paper-overboard binding, and eight pages of never-before-published artwork make this a perfect gift for Huneck fans and dog lovers who are curious as to just how their best
friends really tick.
Everyone is enchanted by Sally, Stephen Huneck's incorrigible, adorable Labrador. Sally is sensitive, loyal, and loving. But she is also a realist: faced with deep moral quandaries like whether or not to sleep on the sofa, snag a morsel from the kitchen counter, or stick her nose into other people's business, she favors immediate gratification. Her thoughts on the enduring concerns, appetites, and existential dilemmas of canines-and their human relations-make a wry, playful, life-affirming gift to warm any dog lover's or art aficionado's heart.
