When the Mona Woofa is stolen from the Dogopolis Museum of Art, a mysterious character who calls himself Art Dog tracks down and captures the thieves *Author: Hurd, Thacher *Publication Date: 1998/01/01 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: Preschool *Language: English *Depth: 0.25 *Width: 9.00 *Height: 10.00
From the Publisher:
When the "Mona Woofa" disappears from the Dogopolis Museum of Art, the police arrest a mysterious masked graffiti artist for the crime. But with a few swift strokes of his brush, Art Dog is free--and hot on the trail of the real crooks. Full color.

Oh, no! Someone has stolen the Mona Woofa from the Dogopolis Museum of Art and the police don't even realize that they are barking up the wrong tree when they collar their number one suspect. So it's up to Art Dog, the mysterious, masked painter who roams the streets of Dogopolis, to find the missing masterpiece. Zip! Splash! Smoosh! He paints himself a Brushmobile, and he's off??on a wild and funny chase to capture the dastardly crooks. With the same deft touches of high-spirited fun and adventure that have made Mystery on the Docks and Mama Don't Allow (both Reading Rainbow Featured Selections) such perennially popular stories, Thacher Hurd serves up a new action-packed tale that will delight young readers.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Hurd employs a disarming, deliberately slapdash style, blazing a trail of scrawled charm across the streets and skies of Gotham; Art Dog is a superhero for all times." 11/15/1995

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The story has a camp, cartoonish Batman zaniness to it that kids will sink their canines into; the illustrations, with their kennel of transformed famous paintings--the self-portrait of Vincent Van Dog is eerily effective--Thurberesquely drawn cast, and explosions of literarily colorful action sequences will entertain artist and philistine alike." - Deborah Stevenson February 1996
