Dog Diaries

by Betsy Cromer Byars, Betsy Duffey, Laurie Myers Illustrated by Erik Brooks

What do dogs really think about their two-legged companions?

It is the first annual meeting of the WOOF Society. Dogs of different backgrounds and breeds have gathered to hear the secret diaries of its members.

Abu is the ruler of ancient Egypt, but Miu, the Royal Cat, constantly irritates him — except at night. Tidbit, born the runt of the litter, becomes a star singer at the Grand Ole Opry. Jip leads his blinded master back home from the Civil War. Mimi, a dog living in Paris, shares her tips on bathroom protocol and dinnertime etiquette.

These humorous and touching stories, complemented by Erik Brooks” s black-and-white illustrations, are sure to appeal to dog lovers of all ages.
