Dog Food

Written & Illustrated by Saxton Freymann

Remember the old advertisement for Levy’s rye bread? “You don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy’s.” Well, you don’t have to be a dog lover to love Dog Food. But if you do you’ll go crazy for this book!

Pepper Puppies. Cauliflower Canines. Banana Beagles. They’re all here, in a gift book so fresh, you’ll want to serve it right away. The creators of Play with Your Food and How Are You Peeling? take our favorite doggy phrases and turn them on their stem with the help of a produce aisle-full of hammy (you should pardon the expression) fruit-and-veggie sculptures.

Chili Dog?
(Think potatoes in winter) 
Dog Catcher?
(Think peppers and frisbees)

And of course, this book brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “Dog Eat Dog…!”

Now available as a board book!

“Food sculptors Freymann and Elffers are at it again, turning vegetables and fruits into something not found in the garden or grocery…. And what fun it is! Bananas, cucumbers, artichokes, broccoli, and more are rearranged and combined into hilarious canine scenes.” - Booklist

“In this latest entry in their series using food as modeling materials, Freymann and Elffers turn their talents for clever puns, both visual and verbal, to the world of dogs… A pun-filled treat for young gifted students, and… a thoughtful gift to cheer up any dog lover.” - Kirkus Reviews
