A joyous celebration of affection and friendship, told through beautifully observed moments between a little girl and her dog I love . . . the way you always care, the way you're always there . . . That's the way I love you. A triumph of simplicity in words and pictures, it is impossible not to be moved by this story about a little girl with a big personality, and her long-suffering, much-loved dog.

David Bedford’s picture books have been published around the world. His books include Big; Big & Small; Bums; Tails; Toes; Tums; In-o-saur, Out-o-saur; and One-o-saur, Two-o-saur. Ann James is the illustator of Little Humpty.From Booklist:
PreS-K. In this gentle poem celebrating the bond between a child and a cherished pet, a pigtailed toddler counts the ways she adores her sleek little dog (modeled on James' own Australian kelpie). While praising the pup's excellence as playmate, confidant, and snug nighttime presence, the verses only nominally rhyme (on one occasion, "run so fast" pairs with "come straight back"), but the cozy, satisfying refrain, "And that's the way I love you," will easily spill off the page and into lap-sitters' dialogues with their own loved ones. James' minimalist style occasionally leaves the connections between the visuals and the slender text somewhat tenuous, as when a line about sharing accompanies a rather subtle image of the dog standing lookout while his mistress steals cookies from the cookie jar. Still, the feathery, scribbly pastels exude an irrepressible joy that's very much in the puppy spirit. Jennifer Mattson
