ELLIOTT KALAN presents his children's book HORSE MEETS DOG
Horse Meets Dog (Balzer+Bray/HarperCollins Children's)
From television comedy writer Elliott Kalan (The Daily Show) and acclaimed illustrator Tim Miller comes a clever and fast-paced comedy of mistaken species identity: Horse Meets Dog.
According to Dog, Horse is just an oversize dog…with funny paws. And Dog… just a tiny, baby horse with a weird tail. That’s what Horse thinks, anyway. Will Dog take a bottle of hay? Why does Horse have such weird paws? Here is what ensues when a Horse and a Dog meet and attempt to figure what the other is all about. The hijinks of these two whimsical characters will have both children and their parents in stitches, and the book’s inherent message of accepting others, differences and all, will resonate long after the last page is turned.
Elliott Kalan has written for the television shows Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the comic book series Spider-Man and the X-Men. Horse Meets Dog is his first picture book. Elliott grew up in New Jersey and now lives with his wife and young son in Southern California, where he runs the Foundation for Animal Recognition, Mutual (FARM), dedicated to finally solving the serious public problem of horse-dog meeting confusion.
