I'm My Own Dog

By David Ezra Stein
Illustrated by David Ezra Stein

Caldecott Honor winner David Ezra Stein has fans at his command with this comical dog’s-eye view of having a best friend.

Many dogs have human owners. Not this dog. He fetches his own slippers, curls up at his own feet, and gives himself a good scratch. But there is one spot, in the middle of his back, that he just can’t reach. So one day, he lets a human scratch it. And the poor little fella follows him home. What can the dog do but get a leash to lead the guy around with? Dog lovers of all ages will revel in the humorous role-reversal as this dog teaches his human all the skills he needs to be a faithful companion.

  • A funny new picture book from Caldecott-Honor winning author-illustrator.
  • David Ezra Stein is emerging as a unique and exciting voice in the picture book world.
  • A twist on the boy and his dog story that has both humor and lots of heart.
