An exuberant counting story featuring delightful dachshunds in creative costumes, inspired by the real, and hilarious, dachshund parades, for fans of Can I Be Your Dog?.

Dozens of dachshunds in clever costumes are the stars of a woofing, wagging costume parade! How many
dogs can you count? Dressed up as birds, bees, books, dinosaurs, and other delightful surprises, each new pair,
trio, and group adds to the excitement. When the parade is through, there's a joyous jamboree, complete with a
sing-along, bark-along dachshund song.

Additional back matter highlights all the different sizes, coats, colors, and patterns of this beloved breed.

Stephanie Calmenson is the author of over 100 books for children, which have been called “marvelous” (Publishers Weekly), “lyrical” and “hilarious” (School Library Journal), and “sweet, funny, and right on the mark” (Booklist). Before turning to writing, Stephanie was an early childhood teacher, a children's book editor, and Editorial Director of the Parents Magazine Press Read-Aloud Book Club. She lives in New York with her husband, Mark, and their dachshund, Harry.

By the time kids reach the story’s end, they’ll want to sing along with the closing song: “We love dachshunds, short and long. / They are bold, and they are strong. / They are loyal. They are proud. / They may be small, but their barks are LOUD!” Delightful dachshund facts round things off in the back matter." - Booklist

"A parade of charm." - Kirkus Reviews
