A poetic collection that celebrates the extraordinary and ordinary power of dogs of all kinds, in sly and cheerful verse from celebrated poet David Elliott. Features artwork from an all-star cast of bestselling and award-winning illustrators.

In so many hearts you’re number one! Agile! High-spirited! Obedient! Fun! You hunt. You fish. You search and find. You cheer the old. You guide the blind.

In this ode to our most loyal companions, you’ll meet the Labrador Retriever and sixteen other remarkable dogs. There’s the Bloodhound, who has a sense of smell a thousand times better than yours or mine. And there’s the Irish Wolfhound, the world’s tallest dog, who was once the companion of royalty. And we can’t forget the mutt.

But that’s not all! You’ll meet big dogs and small dogs, scruffy dogs and elegant dogs, and dogs from all around the world. Pairing engaging poems with surprising facts, Best in Show is a one-of-a-kind gift and a pawsitively perfect read-aloud for dog lovers and aspiring pet owners.

Includes illustrations by Elaine Bay, Cátia Chien, Matthew Cordell, Cindy Derby, Flavia Z. Drago, Leo Espinosa, Raissa Figueroa, Julie Flett, Ebony Glenn, Rebecca Green, Emily Hughes, Oge Mora, Kenard Pak, Antoinette Portis, Raúl the Third, Sergio Ruzzier, Charles Santoso, and David Ezra Stein.
