About the book: Dumpster Dog

He smells of sardines, he's covered in fleas, and "smart" isn't exactly how you'd describe him... His name is Dumpster Dog, and now he's decided that it's time to go out into the world to find a master. He's looking for someone to feed him, play with him, and take him on long walks, but soon discovers that good masters are hard to come by and the world has its fair share of dangers. Will Dumpster Dog be able to find the master of his dreams?

Featuring vibrant illustrations from Boutavant, written by Colas Gutman and translated from the French by Allison Charette, Dumpster Dog will be published in January from Enchanted Lion.
