What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Meeting a new dog is exciting, but it can also be scary. This humorous how-to manual shows kids the best ways to interact with unfamiliar dogs, providing helpful tips about all sorts of dog behavior. Children often don’t understand what dogs’ actions mean and can misinterpret a threatening signal for a friendly one and vice versa. Kids and parents will return to Wendy Wahman’s playful illustrations again and again for useful reminders: Slow Down. Stay very still. And remember, don’t lick the dog!

Who Wrote Don't Lick the Dog

author & illustrator
Wendy Wahman
Verified creative

I began in a small yellow house in Torrance, California. I was painfully shy and quiet and drew all the time. I made up stories in my head while I was drawing, and still do.

I’ve learned everything on the job or on my own. My checkered past includes being a dog trainer, vet tech, janitor, technical illustrator, graphic artist, toy, and textile designer. When I got a job in the art department of the Seattle P-I newspaper, I felt I’d won the lottery. I got to do illustrations every week, draw maps (I love making maps), and other newspapery-graphics. I loved working at the paper, and when the 146-year-old Hearst newspaper was closed in 2009, I went down with the ship.

My favorite food is popcorn, my children are animals, and I’m stretchy like Gumby from yoga.
