“I’m passionate about helping children (and their parents) understand how best to safely interact with dogs, and this book perfectly encapsulates my philosophies on the matter in a really fun and engaging way.”—Victoria Stilwell, host of It’s Me or the Dog
"In this vividly illustrated and smartly written tutorial, Wahman runs through a set of rhyming tips for any child encountering a potential four-legged friend… No matter the mood, the illustrations strike a perfect balance, using a spiky style reminiscent of papercraft atop bright, single-color backgrounds… Gentle self-defense suggestions close this unique offering."—Booklist
"Eye-popping colors and exaggerated shapes with sharp edges are the defining characteristics of Wahman's distinctive illustrations for this how-to on meeting new canine friends."—Kirkus Reviews
WENDY WAHMAN lives in Washington State with big poodles, old cats, and a husband named Joe. She’s won many awards for illustration, but her greatest joy is loving the two-, three-, and four-legged animals she has known. This is her first children’s book.
