Mutt Dog!

by Stephen Michael King

Published by Harcourt, 2005
32 pages
ISBN: 0-15-205561-4

Ages 3-7

“In the city lived a dog . . . who belonged to no one.” The scruffy, brown and white dog wanders his way into a homeless shelter, but it’s too crowded with people to have room for him. Not to worry. There’s a good home waiting after a woman who works at the shelter takes the dog home . . . to stay. In a hilarious scene depicting the many sides of the dog’s personality and appearance, she and her family try to come up with the perfect name for the new member of their family (Bear? Heathcliff? Errol? Radiator? Picasso?). But they always come back to one in particular: Mutt Dog! Australian author/illustrator Stephen Michael King’s picture book is warm and endearing. Highly Commended, 2006 Charlotte Zolotow Award  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
