Only My Dog Knows I Pick My Nose
To the outside world, it might look like you do everything right: eat your broccoli, share your toys, and behave in the bath. But what about the moments when no one is looking, and your messier, mushier, scared-ier self is revealed? The only one who knows is…the loyal dog friend who sees it all and still loves you just the way you are.
With tender, humorous text from New York Times bestselling author Lauren Tarshis and joyful, expressive watercolors from artist Lisa Mezoff, this sweet story presents a validating message of confidence, empowerment, and unconditional love.
LAUREN TARSHIS' New York Times bestselling I Survived series (which has over 34 million copies in print!) tells stories of young people and their resilience and strength in the midst of unimaginable disasters and times of turmoil. Lauren has brought her signature warmth and exhaustive research to topics such as the battle of D-Day, the American Revolution, Hurricane Katrina, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the attacks of September 11, 2001, and other world events.
LISA BRONSON MEZOFF is a designer and illustrator who loves to read, paint, and eat desserts. Since she didn’t have a dog when she was growing up, she told all her secrets to her stuffed giraffe, Patricia. She lives with her family in Connecticut, and you can find her online at
