Synopsis

Small Brown Dog is having a bad day—he can't remember where he's left his collar and tags, and without them he can't remember his name. So a headlong hunt for the collar begins. Everyone wants to help such an adorable but muddled mutt. As the chase goes on, his canine neighbors remind him that he is many wonderful things. But Who Is He? Arriving at the police station at last is just the thing to jog Small Brown Dog's memory.

Gleefully madcap paintings by Barbara Nascimbeni capture Small Brown Dog's puppy exuberance and perfectly caricature other breeds of dogs from the most dignified dalmatian to the yappiest Chihuahua. This read-aloud is a dog-lover's dream and a book that readers will have no trouble remembering—with delight.
