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.

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
