From the publisher:
"Meet Bailey, a dog who surprises and charms his fellow human classmates with his irrepressible antics.
Follow Bailey the dog as he gets ready and goes to school. Should he wear the red or blue collar? Both are so fashionable! Will he be late? That squirrel is a distraction! And what about Bailey's homework? Would you believe he ate it? That is what dogs do, after all.In this funny new book from the best-selling children's illustrator Harry Bliss, school proves to be an unexpected place for Bailey to do all sorts of things he loves: reading, fetching, painting, digging, singing — and making friends!"
Author Harry Bliss is a cartoonist and cover artist for The New Yorker magazine, and it shows; the illustrations in Bailey are playful and engaging.
Bibliophile's reaction: He loved it. He especially liked when Bailey fell asleep reading a book. It is a fun book to act out, as Bailey engages in funny dancing, howling while trying to sing, etc. Every reading (there were many) brought laughter.
