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.

Carl is a trusted family pet who is left to take care of his owners baby while they are at a Christmas party. This picture book is beautifully illustrated and tells the tale of a dog and a baby on a Christmas Eve night. Rich colors.
Loved the illistration such a wonderful story. I have had rottwielers for over 20 years and all the Good Dog Carl books are remarkably illistrated and so true to a rotti's behavior. I give my niece a book for every birthday & christmas because the breed is so dear to my heart and should be recognized as such a wonderful family dog.
I got this book when i was three, every time i read it the story changed. Now that I'm sixteen i still love to read it and change the story everyday.
