Bow-Wow Bugs a Bug (Hardcover)
Harcourt Children's Books, 9780152058135, 40pp.
Publication Date: June 1, 2007
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)
