About the Author

Ross Collins has illustrated more than one hundred books for children and is the author-illustrator of There's a Bear on My Chair, This Zoo Is Not for You, and What Does an Anteater Eat?

He also likes walking in the Scottish glens with his dog, Hugo, and his partner, Jacqui. Ross Collins lives in Scotland.

Reviews

This winsome story takes the premise of a child's first animal-identification picture dictionary (in fact the crossed-out title on the cover is My First Animal Book; the title is written beneath it in crayon) that has been hijacked by the first animal presented in the book: a dog...If readers aren't laughing out loud by now, they aren't ready for this kind of metafictive play--give it a few months and bring it back out. A clever, wonderfully silly, delightful romp.
--Kirkus Reviews

With bright-colored backdrops, Collins's silly scenes focus all the attention on the titular dog, whose troublemaking manages to introduce a bit of meta fun.
--Publishers Weekly
