Good Rosie!

By Kate DiCamillo
Illustrated by Harry Bliss

Beloved storyteller Kate DiCamillo and cartoonist Harry Bliss introduce some delightfully doggy dogs in a warm, funny tale of a timid pup who needs a friend.

Rosie is a good dog and a faithful companion to her owner, George. She likes taking walks with George and looking at the clouds together. But the closest she comes to another dog is when she encounters her reflection in her empty dog bowl, and sometimes that makes Rosie feel lonely. One day George decides to try taking Rosie to the dog park, but the park is full of dogs that Rosie doesn’t know, which makes her feel lonelier than ever. So when big, loud Maurice and small, yippy Fifi bound over and want to play, Rosie’s not sure how to respond. Is there a trick to making friends? And if so, can they all figure it out together?

  • Beloved storyteller Kate DiCamillo and New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss join forces to introduce a new character – a very good dog named Rosie – in a graphic storybook about making friends.
  • Features three very different (and lovable) dogs – no matter what kind of dog lover you are, there is a dog for you here!
  • Full of humour and pathos, with nine short chapters for beginning readers who are building confidence – or for listeners of any age.
