If a Dog Could Blog
By: Lisa Breeden Garcia
Illustrated By: Susan Shorter
Admit it: If you have a dog, you’ve always wondered what thoughts he had or stories he would tell if he had the chance, but what kind of dog can blog about her crazy (and sometimes lazy) experiences? In the new illustrated children’s book If a Dog Could Blog, Lisa Breeden Garcia brings to life the daily goings-on of her technology-savvy Basset Hound, a character that children can easily relate to in this electronically-connected world. Killer, who lives with her (human) parents and her little sister (a Great Dane), narrates her adventures on her blog, which include being swept away by a giant “tsunami” in a creek near her house, meeting the new barn kitties taken in by her parents, and being accused of running away from home. As an added bonus, children can even log on to Killer’s actual blog URL, www.killerdog.typepad.com, to leave comments. You can purchase If a Dog Could Blog online at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and Borders.com.
