About this item
This reprint of a book originally published in 1940 boasts no credited author or illustrator, but these anonymous creators gave us a delightful array of dressed-up dogs engaged in a variety of human pursuits. We have a Scottie tailor, assisting a duck friend with a sailor suit. A family of terriers is most proud of their outfits, which include top hat and tails for Papa Dog and a full kilt and cap for Baby Dog. Into even this gentle tale (or should we say tail?) a little rain must fall, and here it takes the form of a tumble into a puddle, and a bit of mocking by an interloping cat. All in all, "The Doggy Book," is a delightfully lighthearted gathering of beautiful illustrations of one of our favorite genres – animals dressed up and acting as humans – and sure to be enjoyed by children or anyone who enjoys vintage illustration.
