Overview

Skinny Brown Dog by Kimberly Willis Holt, Donald Saaf

A charming story about an unlikely friendship by National Book Award–winning author Kimberly Willis Holt

Benny the baker leads a simple life. He makes delicious cakes, cookies and muffins, and keeps his customers well fed and happy. When a skinny brown dog shows up on Benny's doorstep, nothing Benny says can convince him to go away. While Benny insists that the dog isn't his, customers soon grow as fond of the skinny brown dog as they are of Benny's yummy treats. The children even name him Brownie—the perfect name for a baker's dog.

Benny starts to wonder what it might be like to have a dog of his own. But it's not until Brownie comes to his rescue that Benny realizes a dog can make a very good friend. Full of winning characters (and delicious treats!), this book celebrates a very special friendship.

About the Author

She's the author of nineteen books for a wide range of ages, many of which have won awards and honors. Her third novel, When Zachary Beaver Came to Town won the National Book Award for Young People's Literature. Her latest title is a middle grade novel, Blooming at the Texas Sunrise Motel. She writes and gardens in Texas.

Donald Saaf, a graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has illustrated many highly acclaimed books for children, as well as a CD cover for children's singer Dan Zanes. He lives in Vermont with his family.
