From the domestic popularity of the Golden Retriever to the wrinkly charm of the regal Shar-Pei, this generously illustrated compendium of everything canine is the perfect gift for the young dog enthusiast. The colorful, fact-filled pages and informative text provide children with a wide-ranging overview of the world of dogs. Kids will not only learn how to care for their dogs but also how to interpret their moods and understand their behavior, and physiology. The various breeds and their evolution are covered, as well as dogs in film, art, fiction, and mythology. Liz Taylor's lapdogs are given appropriate celebrity treatment, while Sirius the "Dog Star" is given credit for warning ancient Egyptians of the coming flood season. Special features include an illustrated glossary, index, and a canine family tree. From wet nose to wagging tail, this is the perfect gift for the young dog lover.
