From the Publisher
Annotation Harry is a white dog with black spots who hates taking a bath. Knowing that his owners plan to wash him, Harry runs away from home. He has a lot of fun playing and gets so dirty that he looks like a black dog with white spots. In fact, he is so dirty that when he returns home his owners don't even recognize him. How can Harry convince them that underneath all the filth he is their dog? Illustrated with color drawings.
First Line Harry was a white dog with black spots who liked everything, except...getting a bath.
Editors Note "Harry, a shaggy white dog with black spots, hated baths so much that one day he buried the scrubbing brush in the backyard, ran away from home, and had a wonderful day. Drawings full of action and humor."--"The Horn Book."
Annotation 3 Harry is a feisty little dog who hates taking a bath. Knowing that his human family is preparing a bubbly tub for him, Harry runs away from home. After playing in such grubby spots as the railroad station, the park, and even a coal chute, Harry gets so dirty that he changes from a white dog with black spots to a black dog with white spots. In fact, he gets so dirty that when he returns home, his owners don't even recognize him. How can Harry convince them that underneath all the filth he is their own beloved dog? A celebration of the fun of getting dirty, the comfort of cleaning up, and the joy of being welcomed back home, HARRY THE DIRTY DOG is illustrated with B&W drawings that are highlighted with soft greens and yellows.
Annotation 4 A classic originally published in 1956, HARRY THE DIRTY DOG is still adored immensely by just about everyone. Harry is a feisty little dog who hates taking a bath. Knowing that his human family is preparing a bubbly tub for him, Harry runs away from home to play at the railroad station, the park, and even in a coal chute.

In fact, when Harry returns home, his owners don't even recognize him. How can he convince them that underneath all the filth he is their own beloved dog? An enthusiastic hullabaloo all about the joy of getting dirty, the comfort of cleaning up, and the pleasure of being welcomed back home, HARRY THE DIRTY DOG is illustrated with B&W drawings that are highlighted with soft greens and yellows.
