Princess Zelda and the Frog, by Carol Gardner, photographs by Shane Young (2011, Feiwel and Friends)
some folks may know already of Zelda, apparently a superstar bulldog who has a line of cards and adult novelty books. she's new to us, however. and this is Zelda's first children's book. we stumbled upon the book on the 'new' shelves in our local library's children's section. i am not a dog person, but i might just be a Zelda person. my girls certainly are.
p.s. ... the Portland author states that Zelda is expected to star in another children's book with 'Princess Zelda and the Fairy Grungemother.'
