From the co-author of the hilarious national bestseller All My Friends Are Dead comes a very tall tale about a very long dog—with a very big surprise at the tail-end!
Lucy is the world's longest dog, but just how long is she? Like, are we talking pretty long? Or super-crazy number-one-record-breaking BANANAS long? See for yourself in this hilarious picture book by best-selling author-illustrator Avery Monsen. (Warning: the dog is very long.)

  • "[V]ery well delivered. The suspense and hinted expectation that every page turn may reveal Lucy’s head does not get old and, in fact, provides some solid laughs when Lucy punks her readers…. [It] will effortlessly invite participation with young audiences, giving the book great read-aloud appeal for teachers, caregivers, and dog-loving librarians alike."
  • "A cheerful, good-humored bit of a stretch."
  • “Amusing and quippy, with some rib-nudging humor…a terrific read aloud.”
