Julian is a big-eared, high-spirited farm dog, whose job is to chase groundhogs out of the garden. In fact, Julian chases anything that moves, from cars to the neighbor’s horse. And he also chases May’s gentle black cat Victoria, and her kitten Ricky Rainbow, who scramble for safety whenever Julian appears. But one day Julian proves that he really is a good dog, a hero in fact, and May, Victoria, and Ricky Rainbow can really count him part of their family.

From Our Editors

Every farm needs a good, strong dog that can chase off the critters and keep the livestock from harm. That's why the little girl on Dayal Kaur Khalsa's farm is so relieved that her new, floppy-eared friend is so good at chasing - it means her parents will let her keep him! But her relief's short-lived when the family - and more particularly, the cats - realize that Julian's far from discriminating when it comes to chasing things. In other words, he'll chase anything that moves, including groundhogs, cows and cars! The family's in despair until one fateful night, when their adoring herder teaches them that even an irritating fault can come in useful sometimes. The highly acclaimed artist's picture book Julian fits in with such beloved animal-related titles as I Want a Dog and The Snow Cat.
