Animal illustrator John Green and writer Soren Robertson have teamed up to create a unique coloring book that reveals many fascinating facts about humanity's "best friend." Here are 42 popular breeds - dachshund, beagle, collie, cocker spaniel, St. Bernard, greyhound, poodle, German shepherd, etc. - all rendered in superb line drawings. Each breed's average height and weight, standard coloring, general characteristics, and historical origins are described in concise captions; a helpful glossary defines hair-color terms. While showing how dogs serve humanity as hunters, racers, workers, and loyal pets, the informative introduction traces the highlights of canine history beginning with the first wolf-like dogs who hunted 50,000 years ago.

About the author (1983)

John Green attended a boarding school in Alabama not unlike Alaska's Culver Creek. After graduating from college in 2000, he worked as a chaplain at a children's hospital. His experiences with patients and their families during intense crises solidified his desire to write for teens and inspired him to bring his comic sensibility to a candid novel about the excitement of breaking the rules and the challenge of confronting loss. John now writes for several national magazines, both print and Web-based. He is also a commentator for National Public Radio's afternoon newsmagazine, "All Things Considered," and Chicago's "NPR" affiliate, WBEZ.
