Harry the Dirty Dog

Harry the Dirty Dog

by Gene Zion Illustrated by Margaret Bloy Graham

There's never been another dog as delightful — or dirty — as Harry. Whether he's a white dog with black spots, or a black dog with white spots, Harry is sure to steal your heart (and your scrub brush, too, if you're not careful).

First published in 1956, this beloved classic is a collaboration between Gene Zion and two-time Caldecott Honor winner Margaret Bloy Graham.
