"Open Me … I’m a Dog" is more than a dog and more than a book. After all, how many picture books have furry pages or a tail? And how many dogs have such wonderful prose and pictures in their middle?

The adventures of this poor pup, who moves from one mishap to another, will delight youngsters and their grownups. But what else would you expect from a picture book by Art Spiegelman — yes, THAT Art Spiegelman, the legendary author of "Maus," for which he won a Pulitzer Prize?

In the interest of full disclosure, I received this book from NetGalley and TOON Books in exchange for an honest review.

Open Me...I'm a Dog is an adorable picture book told from the perspective of a dog who has been bewitched to be a book. The story was delightful and weird, and the illustrations from Art Spiegelman were fantastic. I would definitely recommend this one to kiddos who want a little more magic in their lives!

Thanks to NetGalley, Art Spiegelman, and TOON Books for the chance to review this advance copy!

An adorable picture book showing a dog that has been taken over a book. Is that possible? Is it a book? Is it a dog? Can you read it? Pet it? What a fun read.

Open Me, I’m A Dog written by Art Speigelman is such a sweet book! I had the chance to read this book on my Kindle through NetGalley, and I greatly enjoyed it. It is the story of a dog who through different misadventures gets turned into different things, including a book.
I think that this is a great book for younger audiences, and one that their families, teachers, and fellow readers will enjoy too! It has some great humor in it, and some wonderful illustrations. Thank you to NetGalley and to the author and publisher of this book for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I had no idea what to expect from this as I have only read Art Spiegelman's Maus. This was such a fun children's book about a dog...who was turned into this book! I really enjoyed the illustrations and story throughout. I think this will be an easy staple on my future child's bookshelf!

Cute! Could be a lot of fun for magic-loving, dog-loving kids. I can't wait to see it with the actual wagging tail!

I love the author, so I thought I would check out this book. It's WAY different than anything I have read by him, but I LOVED it! This is the story of how a dog was unfortunately cursed (many times) and winds up becoming a book. There are worse things that one could be cursed to be. And this book wants to be your dog... adorable.
