Does Murphy think that Sid is a king? The ultimate master of everything? Or perhaps another type of ruler instead of just a normal grade schooler.
I fell in love with this book from the very first page! Owning a Dachshund myself (along with four other dogs and a cat), Weingarten completely captures the psyche of a dog. I found myself nodding along with all of the very accurate descriptions of Murphy's thoughts and behaviors.
Additionally, Eric Shansby's illustrations are truly breathtaking. Children will definitely be able to relate to Sid and will certainly want to give Murphy a hug. This book will delight children and dog lovers of any age and has become one of my favorite children's books of all time.
