A long time ago, it was just Mommy and me.
We were very good friends.
We did everything together.
It was very nice.
But then . . . things changed.
A dog's world is turned upside-down when his owner brings home a new baby. How will the pooch adjust to the noisy, smelly, furless creature who is hogging all the attention? This humorous picture book story of a family dog's adjustment to the arrival of a new baby will appeal to young readers adjusting to new siblings themselves. Children will enjoy the story's unexpected voice: the first-person point-of-view of the dog. Exuberant, full-color, cartoon-style illustrations add to the fun.
Author Linda Elovitz Marshall recalls how her first dog reacted when she brought home her first baby -- her pooch was not exactly a happy camper. Luckily, dog and baby ended up becoming the best of friends. Linda lives with her husband on a farm in the Hudson River Valley. Illustrator Ged Adamson grew up in Liverpool, England. As a boy, when he wasn't watching TV, he was drawing and doodling. And drawing dogs is something Ged does a lot. He drew the dog in this book as a corgi but Ged insists that it's not because the Queen of England has one, he just really likes corgis.
''Does not disappoint.''
