Best Picture Book of 2018 for Writers


I know you are thinking…what is that, a typo? No.

Can I Be Your Dog? by Troy Cummings (2018, Random House) is an amazing book about rejections. I mean about being rejected…

Let me start over…

Can I Be Your Dog is about a dog trying to find a home.

It’s also about rejections.

Arfy, the dog mails out letters asking those in his neighborhood if he can be their dog. One letter in particular was stolen from an agent. I’m most certain.

Okay, maybe not, but it sure seemed like it.

Can I Be Your Dog, an amazing picture book for all ages, especially writers.
