Franco, Betsy and Michael Wertz. A Dazzling Display of Dogs. Berkeley, CA: Tricycle Press, 2011.

The critics say it’s doggone terrific!

Starred review, School Library Journal, January 1, 2011:
“This follow up to A Curious Collection of Cats (Tricycle, 2009) is dazzling indeed … a delight for kids, their adults, and maybe even their beloved canine companions.”

Review, Horn Book Magazine, January/February 2011:
“The combination of the funny poems and the goofy dogs will make this a great gift book and a sneaky way to inject a little poetry into someone’s life.”

Review, Publishers Weekly, November 29, 2010:
“Franco and Wertz persuasively convey canine behavior … as well as the trials and treasured moments familiar to many owners. Dog lovers won’t want to miss this clever, jubilant gem.”

Review, Roxxy and Jake, my dogs:
“Best dog book of the year!”

ps. Virginia Woolf was a British writer who was born on January 25, 1882. Most of her books are above my reading level.
