Harry the Dirty Dog

Description

In this newly colorized edition of the classic book (published in 1956) by the late Gene Zion and his wife/ illustrator Margaret Bloy Graham, Harry runs away from a bath to find some good, clean fun. But when his adventures in town make him so dirty his own family doesn't recognize him, he must return to the tub to reclaim his identity.

Bloy Graham, who says the illustrations reflect scenes from her childhood in Toronto and special memories of her aunt's two terriers, added the splashes of color herself to this bright new version. It is sure to delight a new generation of readers.
