In this charmingly illustrated collection of pet-related stories children will find out about some of history’s most important scientists, artists, writers, and musicians and their beloved animals.

This surprising and delightful collection of stories is rich in detail and reminiscent of folk art, and captures the humor and poignancy of these fascinating pairings. Together these stories and illustrations will create lasting impressions that will help young readers identify historic figures and spark joy in friendships with the animals in their own lives.
