Pet lovers will adore this funny romp about the ups and downs of day in the life of a kid and her canine.

Walking your dog is easy...but only if your dog wants to walk.

This bouncy day-in-the-life adventure shows what happens when you pair a spunky little girl with a dog who's as stubborn as he is furry.

Debut author-illustrator team Elizabeth Stevens Omlor and Neesha Hudson use spare text and gorgeous ink-and-watercolor illustrations to show kids that working as a team requires cooperation, patience, and heart.

About the Author

Elizabeth Stevens Omlor is a writer, artist, and bilingual teacher who lives in rural Northern California with her husband, two young kids, two ancient cats, and two dogs whose combined fur could clothe a small village. She is addicted to peanut butter and spray-painting unsuspecting furniture.

Neesha has been drawing for as long as she can remember. She lives on the coast of Maine with her husband, their two children, and a Chinese Crested named Napoleon. She walks her dog, draws her dog, and even reads to her dog (with the kids help of course). You can learn more at neeshahudson.com

Praise For Walk Your Dog

"Pet care seems like it’s all fun and games . . . But the slyly funny, watercolor-and-pencil pictures tell a different story. The girl protagonist soon discovers that her scruffy, affectionate, and boundlessly energetic dog has ideas—and a personality—of his own. . . . As readers will recognize early on, the owner and her dog are really two of a kind." —Publishers Weekly

"The watercolor-and-colored-pencil art provides delightful details. . . . The minimal text works well with the maximal visual storytelling. Beginning readers will be able to read this refreshing tale alone; younger kids will tell it from the pictures."  —Kirkus Reviews
