Claudia Schmid’s drawings meet Matt Harvey’s words in this affectionate look at dogs and their humans. Sit! is an entertaining, occasionally surreal, but mostly down-to-earth celebration of the strange, satisfying relationship between dogs and their human companions. Featuring beautiful black-and-white line illustrations to accompany Harvey’s amusing and wry poems, it’s the perfect gift book for all dog lovers.
Funny, eccentric, poignant, questionable, and a bit weird, Sit! will appeal to readers of the same traits.
