A little boy (charmingly drawn by Paul Schmid, of Oliver and His Alligator fame) adores his dog, though the dog does nothing (see also: Sparky! by Jenny Offill). ( )

This overly active boy manages to play with his sleepy lazy dog. He enumerates the things the dog can do, like roll over, play ball, or scare away monsters, but in the pictures all we can see the dog calmly laying while bearing the boy's games. The boy thinks his dog is SO special because all the things it can do! But what makes this dog really special is how it patiently loves this little, happy, loving boy.
The illustrations are cutely rounded, focused in the characters, without background.

Age range: 2 to 5 years old.
