Winners! BookviewPLUS: I'm My Own Dog

Author: David Ezra Stein

Illustrator: David Ezra Stein

First Published: 2014

Genre: Picture Book

Bookbrief: The typical pet picture book is turned on its ear in this witty and charming story. This independent pooch proudly takes care of himself: "I curl up at my own feet. Sometimes, if I'm not comfortable, I tell myself to roll over." He scoffs at the pets who follow commands and demonstrates how he throws and fetches his own stick, "it's fun." His life is pretty perfect…except for the itch on his back that he just can't reach.
