Picture Book Day with Kelly DiPucchio

I know I have been pretty absent from my blog over the past few weeks. Baseball with my boys has kept me very busy, that and I'm trying to squeeze more writing time in to finish the revisions on my middle grade novel. I wanted to make a point to post today, so I figure better late than never! (And now it is Tuesday, so just pretend it is Monday!)

Today I would like to share a brand new picture book by fellow Michigan author Kelly DiPucchio (love her!) and Brian Biggs. 


DOG DAYS OF SCHOOL
by: Kelly DiPucchio and Brian Biggs
Disney-Hyperion 2014

From Goodreads:
Charlie thinks his dog, Norman, has got it good: he gets to spend his days lounging on the couch or playing fetch, and he never has to do any homework. But when Charlie makes a wish to be a dog instead of a boy, things get a little topsy-turvy!

New York Times best-selling author Kelly DiPucchio's signature humor and Brian Biggs's bold, playful illustrations come together in a hilarious tale that proves that the grass always does look greener on the other side (even if that side involves drinking from the toilet!).


Another winner for Kelly DiPucchio! This time she teams up with Brian Biggs, who's illustrations faintly remind me of Charlie Brown. Although maybe that is because the main character's name is Charlie. :) This book shows kids that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, but sometimes it takes stepping into someone else's shoes, or paws, to figure that out. Great books for boys and girls. (And I love that the dog's name is Norman!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you are interested in any of Kelly's other picture books, I have featured many others on my blog. Use the search function to find their posts. Have a great week!
