Miss Moon: Wise Words from A Dog Governess

Miss MoonRed-haired Miss Wilhelmina Moon, who works as a governess to sixty-seven dogs on an island off the coast of France, shares twenty lessons she has learned “for raising happy, healthy, well-mannered pooches – and people.” Each page presents one lesson that is accompanied by an elegant, yet whimsical oil painting. Examples of lessons are “Never stop learning” and “Make-believe is food for the soul.” There are dogs in hats, dogs wearing glasses, dogs in Halloween costumes, dogs dressed as pirates, dogs in the bathtub, and more. Dog breeds range from dachshunds and dalmatians to poodles and pugs. Included is a class photo of all sixty-seven dogs with their canine pupil names. mjw
