What do you imagine dogs are thinking? Author and illustrator Leon Robertson finds himself pondering that question often and decided to address it in his work, ARF & Soul. This thoroughly entertaining book was inspired by language, (human) social issues, and philosophy. Believing that dogs are often left out of the "Big Picture" when it comes to the decisions that impact their life, Leon puts them back in, suggesting that dogs have more wisdom than we give them credit for. Through his illustrations, Leon emphasizes that dogs have a wide range of emotions, dreams and desires. They are more than just our cute, furry, four-legged friends. They are members of our society and want to be treated as such. They get very little say in the decisions that affect their lives, but perhaps they have more wisdom to share than we give them credit for. Robertson's debut book is the perfect gift for dog lovers everywhere.
