The Very Very Very Long Dog

Julia Patton
Book Type: Picture

Bartleby is a very, very, very long dachshund who lives in a bookstore. He has the biggest heart, but sometimes his bumbling backside leaves a trail of destruction and accidents behind him. Embarrassed, he eventually vows to never leave the bookstore again. His friends, however, hatch a plan to help him embrace who he is and keep his backside under control.

Why I’m a Fan

Valerie Friedholm
Co-Founder, Elephant Books

This book displays such a wonderful mixture of humor, friendship, and fun. When my child and I read this for the first time, we could not stop laughing at the silliness of Bartleby’s character. What makes this book the most memorable, though, is its reminder that sometimes we all need a little help to get through tough times and that teamwork can help solve even the most difficult of problems.
