Synopsis

Nobody's waggier than a dog - a meet-'n'-greet, belly-up, rub-a-dub dog. Often words cannot describe man's best friend, so sometimes you've got to break the rules! Susan Campbell Bartoletti unleashes a whole new pack of adjectives in this howling ode to the hound dog. Together, with Beppe Giacobbe's feist-y art, Bartoletti re-domesticates the dictionary and revolutionizes the way pets are portrayed, in a list poem wordsmiths and dog devotees will sit up and beg for.

Bartoletti and Giacobbe collaborate again in this lively sequel to Nobody’s Nosier Than a Cat (2003) and in fact, the starring cat from that work plays a supporting role as feline foil in the sequel.
