A Lucky Author Has A Dog by Mary Lyn Ray
This book introduces kids to a day in the life of a picture book author from the viewpoint of her dog. He thinks: where is she going, what is she doing and when will she ever take me on a walk? The dog is her helper, muse and companion. Without the dog you suspect that the author wouldn't get out to find new ideas, or get fresh air and exercise. At the end of the book, the author visits a classroom and leaves the dog alone most of the day. She comes home to take him on a walk. "The author rubs two happy ears. A tail wags. A lucky dog has an author. And a lucky author has a dog."
