Good ol’ Lazybones, Robert Exelby Perdendo, is the master of all things lazy. Long walks in the park?! Psh! Who needs them? But when all attempts to avoid his latest dreaded “walkies” fail, Lazybones soon discovers something new and exciting along the way—a lovable pug ready to play!

Praise For Lazybones

"Spunky Lazybones is a charming character, with expressive eyes and a shy smile. The simple but satisfying story will appeal to younger preschoolers just beginning to enjoy real stories with a funny plot as well as older preschoolers and emergent readers." —Kirkus Reviews

“[This] story about making friends will reassure kids nervous about venturing into new situations, and everybody will appreciate the endearing antics of an appealingly goofy dog." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
