Doggy Whys

Look inside the picture book:



Why do dogs wag their tail? Why do dogs growl? Why do dogs chase cats? Why do some dogs have short legs? Why do some dogs have their tails cut off? Thought you knew all about dogs? Think again.

These questions are just a few of those asked by Lila Prap in her masterpiece. Every question first elicits a series of witty and amusing answers, followed by a scientific answer explaining a specific canine peculiarity. Children can learn about animals and their characteristics in a fun way, while adults will have to admit they did not know it all.
