Synopsis

I'm My Own Dog by David Ezra Stein

Many dogs have human owners. Not this dog. He fetches his own slippers, curls up at his own feet and gives himself a good scratch. But there is one spot, in the middle of his back, that he just can't reach. So one day, he lets a human scratch it. And the poor little chap follows him home. What can the dog do but get a lead so he can take the chap around? Dog lovers of all ages will revel in the humorous role-reversal as this dog teaches his human all the skills he needs to be a faithful companion.

David Ezra Stein is emerging as a unique and exciting voice in the picture-book world.

Reviews

The quirky marker and watercolour illustrations have plenty of charm and the text is sure to have young readers laughing at the role reversal. Great fun. * Children's Books Ireland Recommended Read *
