In this contemporary retelling of Aesop's fable "The Dog and His Shadow," Smog the city dog has, through his selfishness, lost his precious bag of snacks. He soon learns that the only way to save it is by working together with the other hungry animals. With playful illustrations, this delightful story is a fun read-aloud that makes the important lesson of sharing and cooperation easy for young children to swallow.
