9781101917930: Miss Moon: Wise Words from a Dog Governess

Miss Wilhelmina Moon is a dog governess. At her first placement, on a small island off the coast of France, her new charges - sixty-seven dogs of all shapes, sizes and colors - run wild. But armed with patience and a passion for teaching, as well as her companions, Mitford the monkey and Petunia the French bulldog, Miss Moon soon imparts twenty important lessons to her furry brood. Some are practical, some are playful, one or two are a little unusual, but all are necessary for the raising of happy, healthy and well-mannered dogs (and humans).

Review:

PRAISE FOR Miss Moon: Wise Words from a Dog Governess:

"Enchanting for dog lovers." --Kirkus Reviews

"This light-hearted book is absolutely delightful and ideal for spurring conversations with young children about little lessons in life as well as the enjoyment that comes with balance." --CM Magazine

"The prim and proper Miss Moon has learned valuable lessons over the course of her employment, which are here shared alongside ornate oil paintings with a luxuriousness usually reserved for, well, cat people." --National Post

"[T]here is playfulness, joy, and energy in the paintings that maket his pseudo-how-to book extremely accessible. This one of those ‘pore-over’ books; children will just stare and stare at all the luscious detail." --Quill and Quire

“This deserves a spot on your child’s bookshelf for the gorgeous illustrations alone.” --Dogster.com

"Young dog lovers will delight to the unforgettable artwork, which blends the light fantastic with wholesome advice such as 'A good book will chase away the dark.' Highly recommended."
--Midwest Book Review
