Emma Dodd is the author and illustrator of the 'Dog's' series from Puffin and has illustrated the Amazing Baby board book series. Emma Dodd's unique art style and vivid colors have been called 'just right for preschool audiences' by Kirkus Reviews. She lives in London, England.From Booklist:
Kids want pets. And even if they’re not quite old enough to have their own, that’s not going to stop them from fantasizing. That’s where Dodd’s charming ode to picking the perfect dog comes in. An unnamed girl in a pink dress is certain of what she doesn’t want. An outfitted pooch in a handbag accompanies the declaration: “I don’t want a snooty dog. / A fancy, attitudey dog.” Three bruisers snarl through the following verse: “I don’t want a snappy dog. / A growly, never-happy dog.” The girl also rejects dogs who are gruff or needy or itchy. What’s left? “I just want a silly dog. / A sweet willy-nilly dog.” The rhymes are clever and succinct, and the simple line art incorporates photo elements (a purse, some Astroturf) that lend the right touch of surrealism. The return of all the discarded doggies in a climactic mad dash gives readers a chance to point out their favorite rejectees. A fun, light introduction to all the mutts in young readers’ futures. Preschool-Grade 1. --Daniel Kraus
