Overview


In fanciful wordplay and rhyme, Dave Crawley celebrates the canine world. Dogs. They slobber you with kisses, love to sit in your lap (no matter their size), and often seem to take you for a walk. When you're in a "huggy mood," a dog is there to "snuggle-wuggle" and "ruzzle-wuzzle." They are devoted companions. Dave Crawley celebrates dogs from basset hounds, sheepdogs, and retrievers to Great Danes, bulldogs, oodles of poodles, and more. With spirited illustrations by Tamara Petrosino, Dog Poems is an affectionate and humorous look at man's best friend.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Crawley and Petrosino team up again for a sequel to their previous collaboration, Cat Poems (2005). Some of the 24 rhyming poems in this volume describe different breeds and characteristic canine behavior such as tail-wagging, hogging the bed or sloppy dog kisses. Others look at adopting a puppy or a rescued greyhound or coping with an older dog. Several poems focus on the relationship between humans and dogs, including an interesting look at the dog's evolution from a wolf at the campfire of prehistoric man to a pampered dog in front of the fireplace. The poems are written in a casual, humorous style that children will enjoy, though adults may find them rather sing-song in their rhythm. Though they are generally lighthearted in nature, a few address poignant topics: the loyalty of dogs compared to humans and looking back over the long life of a beloved pet in the final poem. The cartoon-style illustrations done in pen-and-ink and watercolor provide additional comic touches and show dog owners of varying ethnicities. (Poetry. 7-10)
