Actor and New York Times bestselling author Alan Cumming and artist Grant Shaffer imagine what their dogs do when they’re not around—and it’s no surprise that the dogs aspire to lead lives as action-packed and glamorous as their dads’!

Honey and Leon are rescue mutts who love their dads very much. But their dads often have to go away on glamorous and important business, which worries the dogs. Honey and Leon are done staying home and fretting—they’re off on a dad-protecting adventure! Careful to remain incognito, the two pups shadow their dads on a trip across the sea, keeping them out of danger at every turn! How did they survive without Honey and Leon’s protection for this long?!

Editorial Reviews

Young listeners will enjoy finding the pups in each picture and wonder if their own pets might wish to secretly travel along to watch over them. Shaffer's watercolors are foolishly charming on every page and add sight gags and in-jokes for caregivers for extra fun. A fine family fable and a perfect story to read to a devoted dog. Kirkus, June 17 It’s a fun premise, breezily told, and Shaffer’s fluid, pastel-hued watercolors exude a cheery élan, whether the dogs are expertly hailing a cab or wearing sunglasses while doing surveillance on their owners at the movies.PWcomplex enough to keep older readers’ attention and sweetly silly enough to leave readers with a smile. An additional purchase. –School Library Journal July 2017
