Anne, I love these Spike illustrations and the story ~ I am sure it brings great big smiles to all the kids and parents who read it to them ~

I just got the "Spike the Dhog." book in the mail today. It is WONDERFUL. I just love it. Kids are going to GO NUTS over it. . So good on all levels: writing, art, story. As I was reading it I kept thinking it would make a wonderful kid's TV show on PBS! I want a plush toy Spike! I know what I'll be give for Christmas and birthdays!

I like Spike, He's cool. These are so fun, whimsical and artistically & technically well done. Great job. Love the style. Again, Great for a wall or a book and they both tell such a great story. Congrats. FVW
