Dogs Don't Wear Sneakers

Illustrated by Joe Mathieu

About The Book

Dogs don’t wear sneakers, pigs don’t wear hats, and dresses look silly on Siamese cats.

Animals would look pretty silly doing a lot of the things that people do all the time. The unlikely combinations in Laura Numeroff’s cheerful rhymes and Joe Mathieu’s bright, zany pictures will make you laugh out loud. What sort of crazy creatures can you dream up?
