The Hound Dog's Haiku
and Other Poems for Dog Lovers

author: Michael J. Rosen
illustrator: Mary Azarian

A corgi dozes with paws in the air. A bloodhound burrows into a scent. A border collie tracks a herd of cows. A wagging spaniel leaps for joy. In simple, charming haiku, poet Michael J. Rosen portrays twenty beloved dog breeds, from the pug to the Dalmatian to the golden retriever. Complete with interesting facts about each breed and illustrated with Mary Azarianís striking woodcuts, this keepsake volume is sure to set any dog loverís tail a-wagging.

A deft (and dog-loving) poet teams up with a Caldecott-winning artist in a fun, fetching haiku collection for anyone who's ever loved a dog.
