Is Badly Drawn Dog really as funny-looking as the pooch pictured in this amusing book for younger boys and girls? One thing┬'s for sure: Badly Drawn Dog is tired of being badly drawn. He┬'s scribbly and scrawly and sketchy around the eyes. His wish is to become a nicely drawn dog. With that notion in mind, he visits a new artist and asks to be drawn differently. Soon Badly Drawn Dog looks like something out of an abstract cubist painting. He runs out to play, but his drastic change in appearance soon gives him problems. Back he goes to the artist for another style change, but still he isn┬'t satisfied. Maybe a change in his appearance isn┬'t the answer to his dreams, after all. Maybe he should go back to the artist who drew him badly in the first place. Humorous color illustrations on every page.

Very cute and funny book about a dog's quest for a new look and his final self-acceptance of his badly drawn, smudgy original self. Read full review
