About this item
A classic originally published in 1956, HARRY THE DIRTY DOG is still adored immensely by just about everyone. Harry is a feisty little dog who hates taking a bath. Knowing that his human family is preparing a bubbly tub for him, Harry runs away from home to play at the railroad station, the park, and even in a coal chute. He gets so thoroughly dirty that his transformation from a white dog with black spots to a black dog with white spots becomes a disguise. In fact, when Harry returns home, his owners don't even recognize him. How can he convince them that underneath all the filth he is their own beloved dog? An enthusiastic hullabaloo all about the joy of getting dirty, the comfort of cleaning up, and the pleasure of being welcomed back home, HARRY THE DIRTY DOG is illustrated with B&W drawings that are highlighted with soft greens and yellows.
