Archie by Domenica More Gordon

Well hello everyone!  I thought today maybe I'd post about a book, since this is a book blog and all (minor detail really).  Actually I've been meaning to share this book with you because I pretty much adore it!

1- It's a dog book. I have a thing for dog books!

2- It's a (nearly) wordless book. I've gotta thing for those too!

3- It's cute and clever! Who doesn't have a thing for those?

4- It totally reminds me of that part at the beginning of 101 Dalmations where it shows all the people walking their dogs in the park and the dogs look just like the people (best part of that movie! Hands down!!)

So, here you have it: Archie by Domenica More Gordon


It all starts with a hmmmm...

Which leads to an ohhhh....

Things really start hoppin' then...

And just when they seem to settle down...

So, of course...

Are you starting to see why I'm loving this one? It's a book with the words woof, hmmm, and whirr-- yet it's one of the cutest things I've seen lately!! So fun!!

Oh, and a couple more things because I am soooo long winded, even about wordless books!  You don't ever really find out if Archie is the owner or the pet. I originally thought it was the owner, but now I think it's the pet (if you were wondering.)

And, I am so intrigued and confused and enchanted, but the fact that it's about dogs with pet dogs?? Just one of those weird things I guess, like how Goofy can talk but Pluto can't.  Anyway-- it totally works in the book-- go check it out and see for yourself! Plus the very very ending (which I didn't show you) is the best!!

Happy Reading!
