Don’t Eat Bees- Life Lessons from Chip the Dog

By Emanuel Berger | June 10 2022 | Children'sBlog

The comic duo that brought you I Don’t Want to Be a Frog is back, with Chip the dog, a hilarious new character who’s got some “wisdom” to share.

Are you a dog in need of advice? Fear not: Chip the dog is ON IT in this super-silly guide to living your best canine life. Chip is seven; he knows things. Like what to eat (important papers, the fancy bird the humans cooked for the fancy dinner, Grandpa’s teeth), and what not to eat (bees). He won’t get those mixed up, will he?

Pet lovers will see their own goofy fur-friends in Chip’s earnest yet ridiculous antics, and readers who love funny animal stories will find their next favorite book buddy with Chip the dog, who’s patiently waiting to eat your homework and slobber on your clothes.
