Description

There are plenty of guides out there for humans about training their dogs - as if humans have ever been the ones in charge. One dog has at last agreed to share the insights gained through years of hard experience: Maggie Mayhem has trained some of the world's most stubborn humans (including her co-author Kim Sears), and so there is no better canine to explain the complexities of human behavior and guide you through the ownership journey. How to Look After Your Human includes:

- tips and techniques on everything from choosing the right human for you, to managing their diet and instilling a mutually beneficial exercise regime

- a guide to deciphering human language, including which words you should be paying attention to (very few) and those you should ignore entirely (rather a lot)

- advice on the vexed issues of fancy dress (canine) and personal hygiene (human)

Written with Maggie's signature wit and wisdom, How to Look After Your Human is the perfect gift for dogs looking to build that unique bond with their humans. The text is accompanied throughout by bright, quirky artwork from critically acclaimed Penguin in Peril creator Helen Hancocks.

The author

Kim Sears lives in Surrey with her husband and two dogs. When she's not working on a painting or chasing a tearaway terrier through the woods, she enjoys Classic FM, chocolate cookies, and copious amounts of Jilly Cooper. How To Look After Your Human is the first book a dog has ever asked her to type up.

Maggie Mayhem lives in the English countryside with her brother and two humans. She has been training humans since puppyhood. When she's not dispensing valuable life advice to her thousands of adoring fans on Twitter, Maggie likes to pick fights and chase things. How to Look After Your Human is her first book.

Helen Hancocks is a cat person. Her best-selling debut Penguin in Peril was about cats, despite the title; her subsequent two picture books WILLIAM AND THE MISSING MASTERPIECE and WILLIAM HEADS TO HOLLYWOOD are also about cats. This is her first book not about cats - any cats found in the pages of How To Look After Your Human were certainly not hidden there by her.
