Don't miss Harry the Dirty Dog! This funny picture book about the strong-willed dog who really doesn't want a bath stands the test of time.

Harry is a white dog with black spots who absolutely, positively hates to take a bath. After a day of adventure, Harry gets so dirty that he no longer looks like a white dog with black spots. Now he looks like a black dog with white spots!

Harry the Dirty Dog has become a classic, entertaining young readers for decades. Perfect for young fans of dogs...especially ones who also don't always want a bath!

For more fun with Harry the Dirty Dog, don't miss No Roses for Harry! and Harry and the Lady Next Door. As Children's Books and Their Creators said about all three books: "There is a droll, seemingly effortless union of art and text in the Harry stories, a delicious mastery of everyday foolishness."

            OMG it's Harry and the dirty dog. It's a very cute story. It's a dog who went out of town and became dirty. when Harry came home they thought it wasn't Harry but, it was really Harry! I read this book about ten times and I'm still interested in it.
