This is the first, and long-overdue, book of CharlesBarsotti’s dog cartoons. Barsotti’s distinctive round pups,rendered in just a few simple lines, have been delighting TheNew Yorker readers for three decades and are instantlyrecognizable for their depiction of canines in human roles.The juxtaposition of their simple world, consistingonly of food, play, and the goings-on of their owners, withthe utterly human tasks of going to therapy, talkingbusiness, or seeing a lawyer, is both adorable and hilarious.A dog standing at a podium announces, “If elected, Ipromise to beg, fetch, and roll over.” An older dog frownsdown at a young pup and says, “Don’t be smug, all puppiesare cute.” An angry dog with brush in hand paints a”BEWARE OF DOG” sign. With an irresistible blend ofbiting humor and affectionate observation, this is a perfectgift book for dog lovers everywhere.
