Chip has dreamed about owning a dog since he was a baby. A dog would be his best friend, for he would teach it to sit, stay, fetch, and roll over. But Chip's parents refuse to buy him one. One night, Chip's dream reveals a deep truth about who Chip is. Chip doesn't need a dog; he is a dog! From then on, his life is changed--he takes himself for walks; teaches himself to sit, stay, and fetch; and makes plenty of neighborhood friends!

William Wegman, beloved author and visual artist, is known internationally for his photographs, videos, and paintings. He has written numerous books for children, including the New York Times bestseller Puppies,and his videos appear regularly on Sesame Street. In this new book, his first in a decade, Wegman combines his background in painting with his photographs to create a fanciful new world, starring the two irresistible characters Flo and Wendell. Wegman and his family, which includes his four dogs Candy, Bobbin, Flo, and Topper (the real life Flo and Wendell), divide their time between New York and Maine.From Booklist:
PreS-Gr. 2. Wegman has made a name for himself photographing Weimaraners as dog-faced humans. In his latest picture book, Chip, a young Weimaraner dressed as a boy, is obsessed with dogs. He wants a dog to play with more than anything. In his imagination, he teaches his dream pet to sit, stay, fetch, and roll over (his pretend friend is a stuffed toy Weimaraner). Chip's parents do not want a dog. His mom (a dog wearing a platinum blond wig and sneakers) is a "cat person," and his dad argues that dogs are a big responsibility. In one hilariously staged breakfast scene, the three sit around a table, expressionless: "There is nothing more to discuss." One day, after a vivid dream, Chip realizes that he is actually a dog and therefore doesn't need one: "He took himself for a walk, taught himself new tricks, and gave himself a bone." This offbeat story turns the "child wants dog" story on its head and is sure to generate giggles from both kids and adults. Karin Snelson
