Kersten Hamilton’s book about the evolution of dogs and humans and the evolution of their relationship to each other, called FIRST FRIEND, debuted last week and it will blow you away! Kersten perfectly marries poetry, universal emotions, and science in one very satisfying package (illustrated by Jaime Kim).

And now she’s doubling down on dogs with WHAT’S UP, PUP?, which shows kids how dogs communicate with each other. Both books are with Janine O’Malley at FSG, and this time, Janine has brought on Lili Chin, known worldwide for her dog behavior infographics, to illustrate. 

It’s going to be dynamite! In fact, if I were a dog, I’d be wagging my tail about it.

Congratulations, Kersten!
