GN with attitude (and dogs)

MUSH: SLED DOGS WITH ATTITUDES by Glenn Eichler and Joe Infurnari (First Second 2011) introduces readers to a team of sled dogs who spend the time they are not mushing discussing various issues of importance to them and their lives (breeding, leadership, the master, food, etc.). This graphic novel is funny, ribald in places actually. But it is also thoughtful and thought-provoking. Imagine what it would be like to see inside the minds of the dogs from DOGSONG or CALL OF THE WILD. Meet Fiddler, Dolly, Venus, Guy, Buddy, and Winston up close and personal as they work and play and occasionally fight. <21>
