Review: Harry the Dirty Dog

Harry the Dirty Dog Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pleasing little illustrations that woo your adult self to read it over and over again.

Harry, the dog, is not so fond of bathing and shoots away to the city for an adventure.
Well, as the name suggests, he gets dirty from the coal engines, the dusts and the smoke.

Gene Zion packs a good tale of the dog who faces rejection by his owners as they fail to recognize his changed guise. Is that a black dog with white spot or a white dog with black spots?

How will Harry ever get them to know!

This short story never goes old with time. Made superb by the illustrator's dexterity with the pen.

The pictures are perennially etched to the word adorable in our psyche.
