Front Inside Cover:


That’s all Emma hears from her human, George, all day long. It’s enough to drive her to distraction. At this rate, she’ll soon run out of things to chew to calm her fraying nerves. What’s a desperate dog to do?

Write to “Dear Queenie”, of course!

The canine advice columnist for the Weekly Bone suggests that Emma get off the couch and get a life. It’s a good start.

. . . But not even Queenie knows how to deal with a human like George.

Eileen Christelow brings her signature wit and flair to a story -- illustrated in an accessible, comic-book style -- that offers a hliarious take on unconditional love and the importance of finding one’s true calling. 

About the Author:

Eileen Christelow is the best-selling author of many Clarion picture books, including the wildly popular Five Little Monkey’s books. Letters from a Desperate Dog was inspired by the sometimes fractious relationship between here husband, Ahren, and her dog, Emma. Eileen lives both of them in Dummerston, Vermont.
