Seeing a Museum from the Eyes of a Pup
Bailey is an adventurous pup who wags his tail in excitement as his class prepares to take a field trip to the museum. Once there, all kinds of smells, sights and distractions get the pup sidetracked and away from his class. The readers follow Bailey as he wanders away from his class, gets into a bit of trouble, and makes new friends with some of the security guards who work at the museum.
Bailey at the Museum by Harry Bliss is a comic book-like story featuring callout boxes and thought bubbles to convey information alongside Bliss’ illustrations and light storyline. Of course, the comic feel is standard to Bliss’ style as a renowned editorial cartoonist.
Bailey’s whimsical adventures are sure to get children chuckling as they follow along in the mind of an excitable pup. Other than touring museums, Bailey has gone on other adventures. Bliss has many children’s books featuring Bailey and other kooky characters sure to make children enjoy reading.
