A Dog Is a Dog by Stephen Shaskan
Rate this book
Clear rating
This one's a pattern book teaching kids various animals by telling them that "a dog is a dog unless it's an X" (and an X is an X unless it's a Y, and a Y is a Y unless it's a Z, and so on).

The illustrations are quite silly and cute, and the book is a

In this story, an elementary school called Frederick Douglas Elementary (which is the name of a real school, by the way, though I'm not sure if they're intended to be one and the same) is anthropomorphized. It's actually a very interesting idea! Adam ...more

“A critic is a man created to praise greater men than himself, but he is never able to find them.”

Stacia Kane
“Authors, reviews are not for you. They are not for you. Authors, reviews are not for you.”
Stacia Kane

Anna Sewell
“Why don't they cut their own children's ears into points to make them look sharp? Why don't they cut off their noses to make them look plucky? One would be just as sensible as the other. What right have they to torment and disfigure God's creatures?”
Anna Sewell, Black Beauty
