The fourth installment in Sam Miserendino and Mike Odum’s Addicted Animal Series
Following the success of other adult-themed parodies of children’s books, author Sam Miserendino presents a delightful tale that will entertain readers with its charming combination of innocence and lack thereof. A humorous play off of the famous If You Give a Moose a Muffin, If You Give a Dog a Doobie tells the tale of a pot-loving pooch whose toking neighbor gives him the best treat ever. The book follows the dog as he experiences the highs and lows of being high and it reveals whether or not it's possible to teach a stoned dog new tricks . . .or to even get him to remember old ones!
Featuring gorgeous full-color illustrations by illustrator Mike Odum that accompany the text, this heartwarming cautionary tale informs readers of the dangers of mixing pot and cute pups.
About the Author
Sam Miserendino is an attorney by day, author by night, and father 24/7. It was in this latter role that Sam was inspired to write about beer-drinking bunnies and bong-smoking bears. After reading books about carb-addicted moose, mice, and pigs to his son and daughter for the millionth time, Sam's thoughts drifted to other animals with other addictions. Sam lives in Buffalo, New York, with his wife, two children, two dogs, and two cats, none of whom, he is happy to report, are addicted to anything more serious than chew toys, catnip, and television. Mike Odum is a former bartender so he has extensive experience with inebriated mammals. Mike's observation of bar fauna informed his skillful renderings in If You Give A Bunny A Beer and If You Give A Bear A Bong. When not drawing drunk bunnies and stoned bears, Mike develops games for ROOT 76—a game company he co-founded. Mike lives in Richmond, Virginia, with his wife and two-year-old daughter, who enjoys sneaking into his studio and adding her own touches to his work.
