my neighbor is a dog

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.
