We know dogs are our best animal friends, but have you ever thought about what that might mean?Fossils show we've shared our work and homes with dogs for tens of thousands of years. Now there's growing evidence that we influenced dogs' evolution-and they, in turn, changed ours. Even more than our closest relatives, the apes, dogs are the species with whom we communicate best. Combining history, paleontology, biology, and cutting-edge medical science, Kay Frydenborg paints a picture of how two different species became deeply entwined-and how we coevolved into the species we are today.
Kay Frydenborg lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two dogs. She's the author of numerous books for young readers including Chocolate, Wild Horse Scientists, They Dreamed of Horses, and Animal Therapist . You can learn more about her at www.kayfrydenborg.com.

Editorial Reviews

? This narrative blend of history and science belongs on all shelves." -Booklist, starred review ? "This lively blend of science and history is an outstanding example of narrative nonfiction." -Kirkus, starred review ? "This is narrative nonfiction at its best-high interest and engaging, with meaty interdisciplinary science exploration. A top choice for tweens and teens." -SLJ, starred review "Sidebars and color photographs supplement and expand on the central narrative, which is all but certain to leave readers thinking about their dogs, and themselves, in entirely new ways." -Publishers Weekly "Evident throughout [ A Dog in the Cave] are the author's passion and curiosity." -Horn Book"
