...he never really comes alive as a character due to the sunglasses covering his eyes in all the illustrations. Penelope, or Fishbreath as Teddy calls her, has more personality, but she is unbelievably pliant for a newly arrived cat. Not too amusing, not too original, not too necessary.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Teddy the dog is living a dog’s life.

He’s the leader of the pack and having fun just being his own dog. But when a mysterious package shows up, it’s a CATastrophe! Or is it? Maybe a surprising addition to the family isn’t so bad. Maybe it’s not just a dog’s life after all.

Teddy the Dog is based on the popular website www.teddythedog.com, which features Teddy on clothing, blankets, and more!

 

About Keri Claiborne Boyle

See more books from this Author
Keri Claiborne Boyle has loved writing since she was your age. After years in business communications, she now gets to write for kids and think like a dog! She earned a master’s degree from Northwestern University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Rochester. An avid triathlete and marathoner, she lives in suburban Boston with her husband and four children (3 human, 1 canine), who serve—sometimes unknowingly—as the inspiration for much of her writing. This is her first children’s book.Growing up, Jonathan Sneider’s appreciation for cartoons extended beyond the television and Sunday comics. He was often caught doodling creatures when he should have been doing his homework. Luckily, he made it out of the University of Vermont alive with a degree in studio art. Now it truly is a dog’s life for Jon, designing in his hometown at Teddy the Dog. He works alongside his dog Honey and some other talented people too! When Jon’s not in the office, he and Honey enjoy hiking, biking, and adventuring, just like Teddy the Dog. To see what Jon's been up to lately, check out www.goodspeedgraphics.com.Teddy the Dog has loved kids (the kind without fur) since he was barely housebroken—especially when they drop food on the floor. His independent spirit has led him on a variety of adventures to encourage everyone to "Be Your Own Dog." Teddy may or may not have been kicked out of obedience school and thinks cats are overrated. He has an affinity for bacon, mud puddles, and extra-long belly rubs. This is Teddy's first picture book. Someday he hopes to lick the face of each and every one of his young fans.
