Bluemle, Elizabeth. 2006/2008. My Father The Dog. Illustrated by Randy Cecil.
"My father pretends to be human, but I know he is really a dog. Consider the evidence..."
Thus starts this fun and playful tribute to dog-like fathers everywhere. What's the evidence?
"When he wakes up, he's fuzzy around the edges. He starts off the day with a good scratch.He fetches the newspaper every morning.My father loves to roughhouse and play tug of war.He hates to lose."
And that's only the beginning. I think most readers will enjoy this one. It's a cute premise that works well in the hands of Bluemle and Cecil. I enjoyed both the text and the art. Overall, I liked it and I think you will too.
