George was once a bouncy pup; now his pace is steady and slow. Still, he feels special. Then – "Ya-yippity, yappity, yeep-yeep-yeep!" – a stray dog bristling with energy lands on George's doorstep and wiggles himself right into George's family. Full of tricks, this new dog, Zippity, is a wonder! But when Zippity disappears, it's George who proves that an old dog with a few tricks of his own can still be . . . SOME DOG!
Expressive watercolors brimming with humor make this a perfect choice for dog lovers of any age, while any child who has felt his status usurped by a new sibling will cheer as George, a most unlikely hero, saves the day.
Some Dog! is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
