MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cookie doesn't walk like other dogs. She walks on her hind legs, and what a sight that is! In Cookie, the Walker, written and illustrated by Chris Monroe and published by Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner Publishing Group, Cookie's walking catches the attention of a show producer, who turns her into a star. And with fame comes benefits: bacon, candy, a fanny pack, her own mini-fridge….
“Monroe's imaginative illustrations play with composition as well as perspective, offering detail-minded readers endless surprises. The goofball text unfolds with tongue firmly in cheek.... A winner.”
But the more Cookie walks, the more people expect from her. Cookie's old friend Kevin keeps reminding her about how great her regular life used to be. And Cookie's legs are getting tired. With cartoon-like illustrations and a healthy dose of humor, Chris Monroe invites readers along on Cookie’s exciting rise to stardom. But will Cookie keep walking for fame and fortune? Or will she stand down and get her life back?
