Another sensation by Isabel Minhós Martins and Madalena Matoso of Planeta Tangerina is My Neighbor is a Dog, a hilarious and zany story about a dog that moves into an apartment building (which looks almost Le Corbusier-inspired), and how his human neighbors react to his arrival. Matoso uses a quirky color palette of red, blue, pink and white and her charming and graphic style make the illustrations feel musical and animated. The take-home message of this book? Don’t judge a book by its cover, even if it’s furry and has four legs.
Another amazing book by the same duo, When I Was Born, can be found in this post.
