Trudy Krisher's Books

Bark Park

BARK PARK! (2018): Most dog owners know that the mere mention of the word park will result in perked ears, wagging tails, and eager looks. This lively book captures that excitement from the canine perspective, celebrating the opportunity to run wild, free of leashes; to chase squirrels; befriend others dogs; gleefully roll in the mud; and, yes, drink out of the toilet when they get home. Krisher's punchy couplets are composed of short phrases with no more than four to five syllables.

There's lots of humor and detail in the watercolor, colored-pencil, and pen-and-ink illustrations that play on dogbreed "personalities" and their relationships with their human companions. With its concise rhymes and action-filled illustrations of canine antics, the book makes for a cheerful preschool read-aloud. (Ages 3-7)
