Miss Wilhelmina Moon is a dog governess. On a small island off the coast of France, Miss Moon takes in sixty-seven dogs of all shapes, sizes, and colors. It is her job to take this wild bunch and teach them all the important things hat a dog should know. And so Miss Moon begins to impart her twenty important lessons for this furry pack. All her lessons are perfect for creating a well-mannered dog, and perhaps a few humans too.
An adorable book that felt timeless in its execution. I hadn't even seen the video below, but could see from page one, the love that went into these illustrations. The story itself is simple. A woman teaching dogs, but despite these paintings not beginning their lives as a picture book, Hill gracefully crafted a story around them that is fanciful and fun. Perfect for children who aspire to be dog governesses or just like dogs in general.
