“A wonderful read! You’ll never look at horses or dogs the same way again!” —Jon Stewart, former host of The Daily Show
Horse is just an oversize dog with funny paws…according to Dog. And Dog? Just a tiny baby horse with a weird tail. That’s what Horse thinks, anyway.
Television comedy writer Elliott Kalan and acclaimed illustrator Tim Miller team up in this clever comedy of mistaken species identity.
More praise for Horse Meets Dog:
“Horse meets Dog! Kalan meets Miller! Two great teams—one SO-DARN-FUNNY book! Go get it!” —Laurie Keller
“Horse Meets Dog is a sweet, wise, and genuinely ha-ha funny exploration of not just horse/dog relations (historically strained), but also of friendship and difference.” —John Hodgman, author of Vacationland
