A sweet and funny collection of poems by Patricia MacLachlan, the author of the Newbery Medal-winning Sarah, Plain and Tall.

It's a dog's life!

Every dog has a tail to wag . . . and a tale to tell. Patricia MacLachlan and Emily MacLachlan Charest asked a collection of canines to speak up--and so they do, in words, barks, and yips. Captured here are accounts of happy days filled with squeaky toys, good smells, plenty of naps, and the very important jobs they do for the people they love to love.

I actually gave this to adult friends of ours before any of us had kids. It's gorgeous. I'm hugely in favor of real poetry for children, given how much children's literature is written in sing-songy rhyme schemes. Let's mix it up a little, people!

Thirteen very short stories told from different doggy perspectives. My favourite was Pocket's story ("I don't know why my things are so tiny. I am HUGE.") I laughed and couldn't stop for several minutes. Great read for "kids" of all ages.
