There's never been another dog as delightful—or dirty—as Harry.
Whether he's a white dog with black spots, or a black dog with white spots, Harry is sure to steal your hear (and your scrub brush, too, if you're not careful).
First published in 1956, this beloved classic is a collaboration between Gene Zion and two-time Caldecott Honor winner Margaret Bloy Graham. The artist has added splashes of color to the cheerful scenes for this welcome new edition.
Born on October 5, in 1913, Gene Zion attended the New School of Social Research and the Pratt Institute. In 1948, he married artist Margaret Bloy Graham, who then collaborated with him on all his picture books. When their marriage ended in 1968, Zion also ended his career as an author. Zion is best known for his creation of the rascally dog, Harry, who appears in such books as HARRY THE DIRTY DOG and HARRY BY THE SEA. He died in 1975.
