Pug
Is the Pug cuter?
Or is the Pug ugh?
Mostly, people love
The little Pug's mug

Raves & reviews:

"Short, spritely poems accompany the 38 varieties of dog showcased in this witty and fact-filled book... The illustrations, which use heavy ink outlines with watercolors and washes of color, are engaging and filled with comic details. Corman incorporates appropriate warnings about interacting with certain breeds and brings everything to a heartwarming conclusion." -- Booklist

"Corman's poems, which are sassy, well-written, and rhythmically enchanting, are on target for each breed of dog and just the right length to entertain and amuse the reader. Yum's lively mixed-media illustrations elevate this book's storyline to a whole new level. While there are many poetry books about dogs available, this one stands out as a picture book that will be read cover to cover as children find themselves engaged by what is going on throughout the pages." -- School Library Connection
