Bow-Wow may look like your average terrier. The streets he walks may seem familiar. But just around the corner, things get a little unusual.With nary a word, Mark Newgarden and Megan Montague Cash have created a story about a bold new doggy who goes where no doggy has gone before. With a spring in his step and his tail only occasionally between his legs, Bow-Wow faces down every foe--well, "almost" every foe--in his path.Step aside, mutts. There's a new dog in town.

Praise For Bow-Wow Bugs a Bug

“Bow-Wow, with his bold lines and expressive black-olive eyes, recalls the retro simplicity of a Bazooka bubble gum comic. It’s a markedly simple execution, yet the story’s witty details stand up to repeat readings.”Family Fun

“Call it a kindler, gentler Twilight Zone in which the doughty protagonist is allowed to return home to bowl and bend at the end of the day. Thoroughly inspired.”Kirkus Reviews (starred)

* “The clever circular plot is funny, quirky, and even suspenseful, working well as a wordless picture book.”--School Library Journal 7/1/07 (starred)
