What do dogs really think about their two-legged companions?
It is the first annual meeting of the WOOF Society. Dogs of different backgrounds and breeds have gathered to hear the secret diaries of its members.
Abu is the ruler of ancient Egypt, but Miu, the Royal Cat, constantly irritates him—except at night. Tidbit, born the runt of the litter, becomes a star singer at the Grand Ole Opry. Jip leads his blinded master back home from the Civil War. Mimi, a dog living in Paris, shares her tips on bathroom protocol and dinnertime etiquette.
These humorous and touching stories, complemented by Erik Brooks’s black-and-white illustrations, are sure to appeal to dog lovers of all ages. Dog Diaries is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
Betsy Byars, a Newbery Award winner, lives in South Carolina, and Betsy Duffey and Laurie Myers--both well-known authors in their own right--live in Georgia.
Erik Brooks has illustrated, as well as written, a number of books for children. He, his wife and daughter, and their dog, Max, live in north central Washington State.
