This is a gifty reissue of a bestselling author's whimsical portrait of Sally, the famous black Labrador, via his trademark woodcut prints. Stephen Huneck's beloved black Labrador Sally has spawned a whole series of children's books, as well as woodcut prints, stationary, tote bags, t-shirts, and even rugs, but the genesis of this world was the now-classic first book, "My Dog's Brain". This volume was a project of passion as Huneck was inspired to create it after a life-threatening illness and two-month coma. The first woodcut he created was the first spread of the book, "Life is a Ball," and all the charming ones that follow it portray the dog that brought him so much joy. "My Dog's Brain" illustrates the predicaments, pleasures, and appetites that make up a dog's life. Specifically, Sally lives for love, loyalty, and the pleasure of the moment, whether it's sleeping on the couch, stealing a lick from an ice cream cone, or barking for no good reason. Sally is neither a good dog nor a bad dog, but "My Dog's Brain" humorously sheds some light on her (and every dog's) impulses and way of thinking.
