Editorial Reviews

"An easy-to-read, conversational, humorous, and informative guide that will help young dog owners communicate with their pets...The illustrations depict George interacting with various cartoon canines whose expressive and varied postures, faces, and actions are irresistible in a Jules Feifferesque way....The author's affectionate understanding of dogs is very apparent, and makes this book one that can be read just for pleasure by any dog lover, as well as for information by any child curious as to what certain actions may mean--or how to stop a dog from doing them. The final picture of George sitting on a park bench with dogs on and around her--goofy dogs, adoring dogs, stolid dogs, sleepy dogs--is a perfect portrayal of good communication.
