Follow Buck, a Boston Terrier, as he does his favorite activities—from playing ball to walking around the block. This picture book for the very young introduces children to dogs with large, bright illustration and encourages reading with alliteration.

Originally a gift for my niece, this is a project I both wrote and illustrated. For more pictures of the real Buck, visit my Bostons page. Available on Amazon.com.
