I Don't Want a Posh Dog

By Emma Dodd (Hardcover Book, 2009)
I don't want a handbag dog.
A tail-not-meant-to-wag dog.

I just want a silly dog.
A sweet willy nilly dog.

A dog I can call MY DOG!

While posh puppies may be all the rage, there's nothing better than a silly, sweet dog that you can call your very own. In this charming picture book, one little girl sets off in search of her perfect pup. Along the way she meets dogs of every shape and size, but ultimately, she knows when she's found the one that's just right for her.

  • "The rhymes are clever and succinct, and the simple line art incorporates photo elements that lend the right touch of surrealism...A funy, light introduction to all the mutts in young readers' futures." --Booklist

    "The exaggerated characteristics and expressions of Dodd's dogs are giggle-inducing, while jaunty type and digitally manipulated areas of texture amp up the text's inherent energy and the dogs' personalities...Plenty of fun for dog lovers." --PW

    "The artwork is a colorful creation of mixed media, and the collage of textures pops off the pages...This title is for dog lovers everywhere." --School Library Journal

    "Dodd's catchy text and handsome art make an appealing picture book for dog lovers (and those hoping to win a pet of their own)." --New York Times Book Review

  • Praise for Dog's Noisy Day:
    "The simple ...vivid colors and the animals are all wonderfully expressive. Dog's Noisy Day is perfect to read aloud to a group of any size. Storytime will never sound the same again." --School Library Journal

    Praise for Dog's Colorful Day:
    "Dog's zaftig physique and wide-eyed good humor are doggone charming, while the combinations of thick, scraggly black outlines and dense swathes of digitally applied candy-color make every encounter with a new spot pop off the page." --PW
