My Dog is the Best

A charming picture book by local author Laurie Ann Thompson and illustrator Paul Schmid, My Dog is the Best tells the sweet, funny story of an energetic young boy, his drowsy dog, and the special bond they share. Even as the dog sleeps, simple words and soothing illustrations show the boy incorporating the pup into his play and celebrating all that his beloved friend can do. A heartwarming portrait of friendship and charming introduction to humor, its story will bring smiles to readers both young and old. As it hits shelves, we're excited to celebrate its release at a launch party with Thompson and Schmid.

No Image Available Laurie Ann Thompsons other books include Be a Changemaker and Emmanuels Dream. She lives with her husband, two children, a grouchy cat, a disabled dog, and an ancient fish in Bellevue, Washington. Learn more about her at
