What makes a dog special? Is it their breed? Is it their color? Could it be their personality? Or maybe it’s what they love to do? Maybe it’s time to ask our four-legged friends, and see what they have to say for themselves. In his next children’s picture book, “A Dog By Any Other Name is Not the Same,” author J.G. Piper takes a look at what makes each dog unique. Each dog is a different breed, lives in a different place, and offers a different perspective. They tell their stories in captivating rhyme and rhythm, and every page is stunningly illustrated by internationally-known artist, Linda Apple.
