Good Dog, Aggie PDF Print E-mail

What You Need to Know:
• Good Dog, Aggie is a story about Ben and his disobedient dog, Aggie (think Marley).
• The story is funny and the illustrations are HILARIOUS.
• The whole vibe in the book, text combined with illistrations, is tongue in cheek. I think the author/illustrator symbiotic
   relationship is brilliantly on display here.
• This book has been nomintated for a 2009 Cybil Award. Please click the Cybils link on the left side of the page to

Sweet Book Summary:
Aggie is Ben's dog, and boy is she naughty. Ben and Aggie even get kicked out of obedience school. The teacher is so frazzled by Aggies behavior, she swiftly recommends home schooling as a much better option for Aggie. Ben is flummoxed! What to do with a dog that won't pay any attention to his commands? Ben finally figures out how to coax Aggie into good behavior, but thanks goodness not too soon, or we wouldn't be able to enjoy this entertaining story. I said up top that the illustrations are hilarious and I meant it. I especially enjoyed Aggie's imperious little face, that screams, "who me?".
