I am the Dog


I love books that have dogs in them and I love Jack E. Davis. I've posted about some of his books in the past, but as I rolled over this morning and looked into the eyes of my very large Airedale Terrier, Mack Daddy, whose head was resting on the pillow next to me, I realized that my dog has a pretty darn good, stress-free life.


It reminded me of the book that Davis illustrated last year, written by Daniel Pinkwater, called "I am the Dog." A very funny story about a boy and dog who change places for one day. It's silly, colorful and so fun in it's whimsical design.

I love picture books that me make me laugh and this one sure does. So much to look at in the illustrations. Davis describes his pictures as "goofy." That makes me laugh too.

I have to check this out! I loved the movie Freaky Friday as a kid. How great would your life be if you were Mack?
