Editorial Reviews

Review

Pooches large and small, common and rare abound in this glorious collection of haiku...brilliant in every way: poetically, visually-the Tao of dogginess!
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Each poem is spot-on both in terms of poetic excellence and insight into unique characteristics of the diverse canines...truly, a dog treat to be savored.
—Library Media Connection (starred review)

Format: Hardcover
The Hound Dog's Haiku: and Other Poems for Dog Lovers, written by Michael J. Rosen and illustrated by Caldecott winner, Mary Azarian, is clever and oh, so charming. The book introduces 20 different breeds of pooches to children through darling illustrations and simple haikus. (I'm a haiku fanatic, so this aspect of the book really pleases me.) I love the fact that children can learn about a variety of breeds while getting a little lesson in poetry. In the back of the book are Notes for Dog Lovers, with explanations of the poems and information about each breed. This book would make a great gift for a dog-loving child. Just remember to also adopt a puppy to go along with the book.

"Pooches large and small, common and rare abound in this glorious collection of haiku....Brilliant in every way: poetically, visually--the Tao of dogginess!" ' starred Kirkus Reviews. And from School Library Journal: "Fetch this title full of wordplay, creative romps, and pet prompts for a fun read." And, from Library Media Connection: "Twenty superbly honed haiku capture the essence and curiosities of twenty breeds of dogs. Each poem is spot-on both in terms of poetic excellence and insight into unique characteristics of the diverse canines, from Bluetick Coonhound to Dachshund, with Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Samoyed, Golden Retriever, and others in between.... An author's note presents brief additional information about each breed...Truly, a dog treat to be savored."
