Don't miss Harry the Dirty Dog! This funny picture book about the strong-willed dog who really doesn't want a bath stands the test of time.

Harry is a white dog with black spots who absolutely, positively hates to take a bath. After a day of adventure, Harry gets so dirty that he no longer looks like a white dog with black spots. Now he looks like a black dog with white spots!

Harry the Dirty Dog has become a classic, entertaining young readers for decades. Perfect for young fans of dogs...especially ones who also don't always want a bath!

For more fun with Harry the Dirty Dog, don't miss No Roses for Harry! and Harry and the Lady Next Door. As Children's Books and Their Creators said about all three books: "There is a droll, seemingly effortless union of art and text in the Harry stories, a delicious mastery of everyday foolishness."

Great art and Suspense. Harry runs away toward wild adventures but lost everyone he loves, unless he finds a way make it home again!

This is one of my favorite classic picture books. Margaret Bloy Graham's lively and sweet illustrations bring the story and Harry to life. Though the recommended age range is 4-8 years old, dog lovers who are older will enjoy it as well. Warning: I recommend this book for children (and adults) who already have a dog or have families that are willing to adopt one! It seems possible to me that everyone who reads it will love Harry and need a dog of their own.

Harry loves everything but baths. What to do when he returns home dirty and his family doesn’t know who he is?

My favourite was Harry. He got all dirty and ran away. He had a bath.

Playing is fun. Playing in the dirt can be especially fun, but what if you don't like to get clean after play?...Harry discovered that sometimes it's good idea to get scrubbed. White or black, it's easy to fall in love with Harry, no matter what colour he is.
