Dog lovers of all ages will delight in this treasure trove of canine images and tidbits. Over 500 full-color photographs showcase dogs in all their tail-wagging glory—from the irrepressible appeal of wrinkly puppies to the noble dignity of beloved older dogs, from endearing mutts to show-stopping purebreds. As with all titles in the Cubebook series, the pictures in this enchanting compendium have been selected based on the originality of their composition, and, in this case, the expressiveness of the book's furry subjects. Playful cocker spaniel puppies, loyal labs, and soulful hounds are captured in everyday moments that become magical through the lens of these expert photographers. Accompanied by informative captions written by distinguished naturalists, zoologists, and journalists, the images in Dogs will warm the hearts of dog lovers of all ages.The trademark three-dimensionality of the Cubebook format is ideal for conveying the energy, intelligence, and lovable nature of man's (and woman's and child's) best friend. The chunky format of this book, chock-full of colorful pictures, will bring special enjoyment to young readers.
