What's Great Dog About

Publisher Summary

The age-old question of “what will I be when I grow up” gets a hilarious twist in this stylish and clever story.

A pup and his father contemplate his grand future while looking at other Great Dogs in their family. Will he be a marathon runner like Uncle Tibor, the fastest dog in the family? Will he be an astronaut like Aunt Yuki, who reached for the stars? Or maybe a teacher like Uncle Scooter, respected by all?

No matter what, says his father, he will be a GREAT dog!

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

5.75 / 7.0

Come for the irresistible design, stay for the sweet messages about unconditional love and familial pride. The premise–juxtaposing each family member’s legacy with the reality of his or her “accomplishments”–is innovative and silly. The text is perfectly brief, and the illustrations are really what tells the story. This book is a sweet reminder that you can cherish all the best bits of your family and then be whomever or whatever you want to be.
