Humorous and whimsical, this vivid collection of images teaches children the ABCs against the backdrop of simple farm life in central Illinois. Earl and Pearl Barker are human-sized canines who, from apples to zinnias, ride horses, play checkers, tend to farm animals, and fill a wheelbarrow with cookies. Entertaining for adults as well, the story of the Barkers is loaded with silly puns and clever wordplay—and each dog pictured in the book is a former rescue dog.

Cindy Pringle is a professional photographer whose images have been published around the world. Kirby Pringle is an award-winning journalist and photographer. They both live in Pesotum, Illinois.Review:
"If you don't own this book, you should! Earl and Pearl's adventures are entertaining and accessible to pre-readers while the Pringles’ clever photo/illustrations and word-smithing will keep any dog- or farm-loving adult amused. The stars’ of the book are all rescued dogs who have found themselves in loving (perhaps even indulgent) homes. I hope the Pringles publish another Earl and Pearl adventure ASAP." Maureen Tan, author, A.K.A. Jane and Run Jane Run
