INFO: Dufresne, Michele. A New Friend at the Beach. G. 2007.
DESC: The crown jewel of the “vanity dog books” (read: photographs of the author’s dogs dressed up in weird clothes; with thin accompanying storyline) genre that appears in early readers (E-H), this book takes a look at two fluffy white dogs (who belong to the author) as they navigate predictable drama on the beach. This time, they try to figure out what clams are, with the help of a new friend – and end up deciding that maybe dog chow really is preferable to human food.
