Honey and Leon are rescue mutts who love their dads very much. But their dads often have to go away on glamorous and important business, which worries the dogs. Honey and Leon are done staying home and fretting—they’re off on a dad-protecting adventure! Careful to remain incognito, the two pups shadow their dads on a trip across the sea, keeping them out of danger at every turn! How did they survive without Honey and Leon’s protection for this long?!
Alan Cumming and Grant Shaffer wrote this story as a tribute to their own dogs, based on their frequent conversations about what Honey and Leon get up to while they’re away.

Praise For The Adventures of Honey & Leon…
It’s a fun premise, breezily told, and Shaffer’s fluid, pastel-hued watercolors exude a cheery élan, whether the dogs are expertly hailing a cab or wearing sunglasses while doing surveillance on their owners at the movies.PW
complex enough to keep older readers’ attention and sweetly silly enough to leave readers with a smile. An additional purchase. –School Library Journal July 2017
