From phenomenal new talent Christopher Browne comes MARLO, a story about a dog who needs a bath but ends up on an adventure, inspired by the author’s own rescue pit bull.
A glorious, mostly wordless picture book about a dog who needs a bath—and finds much more than that—by phenomenal debut author/illustrator Christopher Browne, who was inspired by his own rescue dog. Perfect for fans of Aaron Becker’s Caldecott Honor Book Journey and Erin and Philip Stead’s books.
This lush picture book launches readers into a world of imagination: a glorious underwater adventure with seas of brilliantly colored fish, shadowy predators, and two friends who long to be reunited. With a clever seek-and-find element on each spread, there are treasures to be pored over again and again.
About the Author/Illustrator:
Christopher Browne was born and raised in Massachusetts in a small town filled with apple orchards and sheep. Years later, while he was living in Philly, a ragged young pit bull named Marlo came into his life. Marlo’s sweet, stubborn, and soulful personality soon worked itself not only into Christopher’s imagination but into countless sketches. Christopher currently lives in New York City working as an art director and illustrator. Marlo is his first picture book.
