In fanciful wordplay and rhyme, Dave Crawley celebrates the canine world. Dogs. They slobber you with kisses, love to sit in your lap (no matter their size), and often seem to take you for a walk. When you're in a "huggy mood," a dog is there to "snuggle-wuggle" and "ruzzle-wuzzle." They are devoted companions. Dave Crawley celebrates dogs from basset hounds, sheepdogs, and retrievers to Great Danes, bulldogs, oodles of poodles, and more. With spirited illustrations by Tamara Petrosino, Dog Poems is an affectionate and humorous look at man's best friend.
