About this item

When a housebound dog spies a cat, a bird, and other animals outside a glass door, he is excited: I see a cat. I see a bird. I see a squirrel. When the dog's beloved boy comes home from school, the two pals dash outside, determined to get up close and personal with all the backyard wildlife! A Junior Library Guild Selection.

About the Author

Paul Meisel

Publishing in February 2017 is My Awesome Summer by P. Mantis. (Holiday House Publishers) Non-fiction diary "written" by P. Mantis (or me!) chronicling her short but eventful life.

Also out in March 2017 is Stinky Spike the Pirate Dog and Stinky Spike and the Royal Rescue, written by my son, Peter, illustrated by me. Spike has the best sniffer on the seven seas and has hilarious adventures sniffing out treasure for Captain Fishbeard and his crew.

Thank you to The Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, for the 2012 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor for See Me Run! (a Holiday House I Like to Read book.)

The follow-up, See Me Dig, is out as well. Another adventure featuring running and digging dogs, complete with pirate ghosts and a backhoe. Perfect for beginning readers sounding out words for the first time.
