  About The Book

Flimsy Jill Gawkie
Picked Jeeves for his jowls.
Then moved to Milwaukee
Where winds always howl.
One day on a walkie
She threw in the towel.

Dog fans of all ages will love Flawed Dogs, the annual publication of the fictional "Last Chance" Dog Pound, in the small town of Piddleton, Vermont. Pulitzer Prize-winning Berkeley Breathed, whose picture books have sold over a million copies, is at the top of his form with his riotous depictions of these imperfect dogs and their original, dissatisfied owners.


Berkeley Breathed, one of America's most popular illustrators, is the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for his editorial cartooning. His comic strip "Bloom County" ran for years in newspapers around the world and his books of the collected cartoons include the bestsellers 'Toons for Our Times and Penguin Dreams and Stranger Things. His highly acclaimed picture books, A Wish for Wings That Work: An Opus Christmas Story, The Last Basselope, Goodnight Opus, Red Ranger Came Calling, and Edwurd Fudwupper Fibbed Big have been hits with children and adults alike.

Berkeley Breathed lives, works, and surfs in Montecito, California.
