"I dream of you every day in my spot by the slot. I sit and wait and salivate" With gruesomely delicious rhymes and wickedly joyful illustrations, this unique tale invites readers to share in a dog's ultimate fantasy as it eagerly anticipates the delivery of the daily mail -- and it isn't the letters this dog is interested in! While not for the faint of heart, this book is a grisly romp that will have kids squealing with delight and adults savoring its ghastly naughtiness as the dog joyfully devours the postman, one scrumptious body part at a time.

Carolyn Beck's verse ("When I got a peek…/ at that/ spewing spitting hissing fissure/ your phlegm-hacking/ up-chacking (mmmmmmm)/ lip-smacking kisser") might tickle the sick-humor crowd, but the gore-stained walls and dripping intestines will be hard to take.
