Good Boy Timmy

Eric Walters

Unlike some other dogs at the dog park, Timmy's family never have to worry about him misbehaving. But Timmy is also the relative of wild wolves, the cousin of cunning coyotes, and the descendant of daring dingoes. In his dreams, Timmy wonders: What if he wants to chew up a sweater or sneak into the cereal cupboard? What if Timmy wants to be a Bad Boy instead?

Timmy leaps into life with Eugenie Fernandes' playful and expressive illustrations and Eric Walters' rhythmic and quirky storytelling. In exploring Timmy's world -- from rambunctious walks at the dog park to quiet days at home when his family is away -- readers will relate to his dreams of acting out and making a mess, but come to understand, at the end of the day, that it's good to be good.
