Overview
Maira Kalman, with wit and great sensitivity, reveals why dogs bring out the best in us

Maira Kalman + Dogs = Bliss

Dogs have lessons for us all. In Beloved Dog, renowned artist and author Maira Kalman illuminates our cherished companions as only she can. From the dogs lovingly illustrated in her acclaimed children s books to the real-life pets who inspire her still, Kalman s Beloved Dogis joyful, beautifully illustrated, and, as always, deeply philosophical.

Here is Max Stravinsky, the dog poet of Oh-La-La (Max in Love)-fame, and her own Irish Wheaton Pete (almost named Einstein, until he revealed himself to be clearly no Einstein ), who also made an appearance in the delightful What Pete Ate: From A to Z. And of course, there is Boganch, Kalman s in-laws big black slobbering Hungarian Beast. And that s just the beginning.

With humor and intelligence, Kalman gives voice to the dogs she adores, noting that they are constant reminders that life reveals the best of itself when we live fully in the moment and extend unconditional love. And it is very true, she writes, that the most tender, complicated, most generous part of our being blossoms without any effort, when it comes to the love of a dog.
