Beloved children's icon Good Dog, Carl has his paws full with a mischievous baby elephant who likes backyard wading pools, playgrounds and fruit stands!
Since Good Dog, Carl was published 30 years ago the series has sold well over a million books.
The appeal of the series lies in the nearly wordless narrative, the lovable and somewhat mischievous Rottweiler and the little girl he takes on secret adventures. These are all present in this wonderful addition to the series. Day’s painterly skills are superb and her loving portrayal of the gentle dog and his trusting companion are as winning as ever, and this time an enterprising baby elephant joins the pair.
This time Carl and Madeleine visit a children’s zoo where the enjoy visiting various baby animals. When they leave for an ice cream cone and a walk around the neighborhood, the little elephant follows them and shares their adventures.

About the Author
Alexandra Day and her husband, Harold Darling, established the Green Tiger Press in 1970. In 1983, Harold and Sandra were visiting Zurich, Switzerland, when they came across a volume of old German picture sheets, one of which featured a poodle playing with a baby who was supposed to be taking a nap. This image provided the inspiration for "Good Dog, Carl," which successfully began what would become an increasingly popular picture book series. The Darling's dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the model for the first book's main character. Since then, three other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the sequels. The Darlings now live in Seattle, Washington, where they have a ten-thousand-book library, primarily filled with illustrated children's books.
