This is not your ordinary illustrated alphabet book. Rather, in the vein of the masterful Edward Gorey, whose dark humor, clever wordplay, and delightful illustrations have entertained readers for decades, newcomer Glenda Mason presents an unforgettably creative cautionary tale for dogs and their owners.
Beyond accomplishing the astounding feat of finding twenty-six different breeds that actually begin with each letter-ever heard of an Xoloitzcuintli or a Zuchon?-Mason also shares surprisingly true stories about each one. This dark comedy of canine catastrophes wags its tail at the naïve notion that owning a dog is effortless and sniffs out the importance of taking proper care of your pooch.
From tornadoes to potatoes and lobsters to mobsters, these twenty-six dogs reveal the unimaginable level of mayhem they can dig up when they're left to their own doggy devices. Pups in Peril is one novelty book you don't want to miss.
