Franco, Betsy and Michael Wertz. A Dazzling Display of Dogs. Berkeley, CA: Tricycle Press, 2011.

The critics say it's doggone terrific!

Starred review, School Library Journal, January 1, 2011:
"This follow up to A Curious Collection of Cats (Tricycle, 2009) is dazzling indeed ... a delight for kids, their adults, and maybe even their beloved canine companions."

Review, Horn Book Magazine, January/February 2011:
"The combination of the funny poems and the goofy dogs will make this a great gift book and a sneaky way to inject a little poetry into someone's life."

Review, Publishers Weekly, November 29, 2010:
"Franco and Wertz persuasively convey canine behavior ... as well as the trials and treasured moments familiar to many owners. Dog lovers won't want to miss this clever, jubilant gem."

Review, Roxxy and Jake, my dogs:
"Best dog book of the year!"
