Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and two-time Caldecott Honoree Marla Frazee imagine a God living among us in this spirited and moving collection of illustrated poems.
What if God was living a human existence? What might God do to pass the time? Write a fan letter? Get a desk job? Make spaghetti? Take a bath? Get a dog?
A sublime book for all ages, God Got a Dog celebrates the simple things in our world while taking a long, close look at what it means to be human.
Books she's written and illustrated include the much-beloved Dog Heaven and Cat Heaven.
