About the Author

Alexandra Day is the author and illustrator of Good Dog, Carl and the rest of the beloved Carl books, including Carl Goes Shopping, Carl's Christmas, Carl's Birthday and Carl's Snowy Afternoon. The Darlings' own dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the original model for the main character of Good Dog, Carl. Since then, two other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the sequels: the late Arambarri, who was named for one of the Darlings' favorite jai alai players; and Zabala, who currently moonlights as an Our Best Friend therapy dog, visiting hospitals to cheer patients.

Although the illustrations in the Carl books are not as stylized as, say, Peter McCarty's, their charm and evocativeness are undeniable. Day really captures the essence of Carl's spirit and you can tell she is a close observer of dog behavior. The plots in the Carl books ask and answer the question, "What if your dog was your babysitter?" Then, the fun ensues. Carl takes baby all over town when Mom and Dad are away in adventures only a dog would conceive of. This series of books is a real upper, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

This is a great book that deals with very few words. Only the mother talks and from then on out the dog and baby never say a thing, yet a whole story is laid out before the reader's eyes, making the artwork in this book fantastic and very realistic.
