DOG SHOW

WHEN HARVEY HEARD ABOUT THE BONESPORT DOG SHOW, HE WAS VERY EXCITED. FRED THE BASSET HOUND WAS NOT. HARVEY PLANNED FOR MONTHS. FRED HOPED IT WOULD NEVER COME.

Harvey entered Fred in every class — short dogs, dogs with spots, droopy-eard dogs, and more. By the end of the show, Harvey was miserable and Fred was so tired and hot his tongue was hanging out. Still Fred loved Harvey. He dragged him back in front of the judges for the last event of the day. Fred knew they would win this one…

With droll illustrations by an award winning New Yorker illustrator, this picture book will have young readers roaring with delight at the antics of both the dogs and the people.

“Winthrop weaves a gentle tale about appreciating one’s uniqueness and spices it with an air of dry wit. Ulriksen matches the mood with droll, kickily colored acrylic paintings of man and his best friend…Fred’s wry expressions, relayed via sleepy eyes, low-hanging ears and expressive mouth could well take Best in Show.”
