A Dog Day: Or the Angel in the House Originally published in 1902, this book is the diary of a day in the life of a less-than-well-behaved dog who, nonetheless, charms an entire household. This roguish hero tells the story of a rather eventful day in his life in his own voice--captivating old and young alike with his wit and ability to get away with virtually every canine crime imaginable without punishment. Stealing food, muddying the house, and attacking the household cat are all in a day's work for this mischievous yet lovable dog, who always manages to get off scot-free.

Who could resist a dog who manages to wind a whole household round his paw while committing sins that deserve the harshest punishment? Greedy, always out for the main chance, not above taking revenge on the one person in the person in the house who doesn't like him, he remains utterly appealing. And with Cecil Aldin's pictures to bring him vibrantly alive, he has captivated generations of children and adults alike. First published in 1902, "A Dog Day" has been continously in demand ever since. It remains Cecil Aldin's most enduring creation, and now appears again for a new generation, to delight all those with a soft spot for a wholly lovable scamp.Biographie de l'auteur :
Cecil Aldin was born in Slough and began his working life as a magazine illustrator. He soon became famous for his sporting prints, posters, children's books and pictures of old inns. But it is was in his depictions of dogs that he was unsurpassed, and it was said of him that he 'captured the very soul of a dog'.
