Cookie the Walker

by Chris Monroe

Published by Carolrhoda, 2013
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠩613-56172

Ages 5-9

Cookie the dog抯 initial motivation for walking upright on her two hind legs is convenience--she can reach the candy dish, she can turn on the TV, she can pull damp towels off the towel racks. (揟hey抮e very comfortable.) But once she抯 noticed by humans, her feat quickly escalates her to stardom. She goes from a dog show to a circus to reality TV, each promoter sealing the deal by offering Cookie snacks (and, in one case, a fanny pack). Cookie抯 canine friend Kevin can抰 help noticing that Cookie is getting more and more run down. One day Cookie laments, 揑 just don抰 know how to end it, Kev. I just don抰 know. Grounded, clearheaded Kevin states the obvious: 揧ou could just stand down. Chris Monroe develops an absurd premise into a picture book that hits the humor mother lode. Monroe抯 clever writing and quirky art are a winning pair in this fresh, original, offbeat offering that manages to be both silly and sophisticated. (MS) 2013 Cooperative Children抯 Book Center
