It's the ultimate dog vs. cat showdown!
The apocalypse has come, and humans have vanished from the face of the earth. They've taken with them their feeding bowls and belly-scratching skills, so what is a pair of dog buddies supposed to do? Team up with a gang of furry friends to find some more grub!
The group's ally, Rat, has found a Twonkies factory nearby, and with it a lifetime's supply of sugary goo-filled bliss. But there's a certain special “cat” guarding the Twonkies, and there's only one dog brave enough to duel him-Apollo!
Will the gang be able to train their fearless companion so that he can take on the fierce kitty? They'll have to if they want their dog tummies to stop growling. And if they want to avoid being eaten themselves . . .

"The Proimos father-and-son duo use fun dialogue; simple panel layouts; large-print word balloons; and goofy, scratchy black-and-white art to craft a story about a postapocalyptic future that won’t scare young readers." - Booklist
"It's The Walking Dead with dogs. It's funny, action packed, and now my dogs know how to survive the apocalypse. I look forward to reading Brownie and Apollo's further adventures!" - Dan Santat, Caldecott Award-winning author and illustrator of THE ADVENTURES OF BEEKLE: THE UNIMAGINARY FRIEND on APOCALYPSE BOW WOW
"Uninhibitedly wacky . . . A potent combination of unhinged energy and poignant sentiment." - Publishers Weekly on APOCALYPSE BOW WOW
"[A] postapocalyptic story that younger readers can enjoy without seeing too much potentially scary mayhem." - Booklist on APOCALYPSE BOW WOW
"The simple black and white illustrations are effective for the tone and pace of the story, often adding additional humor to situations. . . . This book is really funny. Spread the word." - 100 Scope Notes on APOCALYPSE BOW WOW
"This is typical Proimos (Proimoi?) in its affable weirdness and loopy, slightly edgy cartoonish artwork. . . . [P]erfect for reluctant readers who need frequent breaks." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books on APOCALYPSE BOW WOW
"In four wordless spreads, Proimos makes Suzy’s awakening powerfully clear." - starred review, Publishers Weekly on YEAR OF THE JUNGLE, illustrated by James Proimos Jr.
"Proimos’s flat, cartoony drawings . . . are sturdy and sweet." - starred review, Booklist on YEAR OF THE JUNGLE, illustrated by James Proimos Jr
