Once I Ate a Pie

Written by: Patricia MacLachlan and Emily MacLachlan Charest

First line: The world is big.

Why you should read this book: You love dogs: big dogs, little dogs, friendly dogs, snooty dogs, dogs who steal the butter and dogs who tear open the mail. Here you'll find thirteen short, tender, and humorous poems told from the point of view of various dogs, written by the Newbery-winning author and her daughter, illustrated with love and whimsy by Katy Schneider. A nice treat for a dog-loving child.

Why you shouldn't read this book: Totally a cat person.
