It seems that everything gets Earl's tail wagging-a bowl of food, a field of flowers, long walks, and belly rubs. But Mooch, Earl's best friend, knows what all of these things have in common: LOVE is what makes Earl's tail wag. Patrick McDonnell, award-winning creator of the nationally-syndicated comic strip Mutts, pays a colorful, energetic tribute to the star of his Mutts comic strip (and a loyal pet and companion to the artist for nearly two decades). This is a tale of wiggling and waggling, fwipping and fwapping...and every dog's secret to the joy of life.
Praise for Wag!:
A 2009 National Parenting Publications Award Winner
