Set against a bygone backdrop completely lacking in any nods to contemporary technology, Lamb and Paroline’s catchy three-color illustrations establish the retro-styled ambiance...A heartfelt tale of acceptance, tolerance, and grief.

Synopsis

Mickey isn't quite like his brothers and sisters. They're all stronger, faster, and have a much better sense of smell. That’s because his "brothers and sisters" are dogs—bloodhounds, to be exact. Mickey’s mom and dad are crazy about canines. Their dogs are the loves of their lives and their livelihood. So, naturally, they’re raising their son as if he was a dog, and Mickey wants nothing more than to make his parents proud.

Just as Mickey is mastering the art of sniffing, a tragic accident forever changes his happy family. Mickey is sent to live with relatives he's never met—relatives who are not fond of kids . . . and who hate dogs!

Making Scents, a laugh-out-loud graphic novel for young readers from Arthur Yorinks, with illustrations by Braden Lamb and Shelli Paroline.
