No Roses for Harry!

Written by: Gene Zion

First line: Harry was a white dog with black spots.

Why you should read this book: Who can't relate to Harry's dilemma: a beloved relative has sent him a comfortable but offensively ugly piece of clothing, and the little dog does everything in his power to deliberately lose this horrible, handmade sweater. Eventually he succeeds in ditching his unwanted outfit, only to experience a vast sense of shame when Grandma comes to visit. Fortunately, Harry knows that his awful sweater has been repurposed, and can show Grandma what a great job he's done at upcycling.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You can't understand why your grandchildren never wear the adorable tops you knit for them with love.
