Hard to Find


Patch is a good dog. At least he tries to be--but sometimes he finds it hard to remember commands or resist chasing rabbits. Three very short stories of a boy and his dog are combined in this adorably illustrated picture book that honors the special bond between dogs and their people and between friends of all species.

About the Author

David Slonim's sweet and mildly mischievous dog, Maggie, is the inspiration for Patch. He has also illustrated It's a Dog's Life by Susan E. Goodman, which features pooches of all sizes and shapes. He lives in Indiana with his wife, kids, and of course, Maggie.
