A Small Brown Dog with a Wet Pink Nose

By Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen (Hardcover Book, 2010)
Amelia wants a dog, needs a dog, and believes she simply cannot live without a small brown dog with a wet pink nose. Her parents think she can.

Rather than begging or pleading, Amelia adopts an imaginary dog named Bones. But when Amelia's make-believe pup runs away, her parents are in for a real surprise!

  • "Dog-loving kids will be taking attentive notes...while even non-pet-yearning kids will appreciate the heroine's victory over the adults." -BCCB

    "Reminiscent of Golden Book illustrations and playfully postmodern. This outing should please young readers, especially those for whom a dog is a most important desire-and children rule." -Kirkus Reviews

    "This title is a good choice for a one-on-one read-aloud or for children to enjoy on their own." -School Library Journal  

    "Smart use of small details conveys Amelia's dog-obsessed home life. Inset panels and vignettes liven up the pages, too, along with occasional typographic accents." -PW
