Description

Mike & Scrabble is an often funny, sometimes melancholy, and occasionally accurate guide to understanding the relationship between a dog and a human. A picture book for adults that grew out of one human trying to remember why he ended up with a dog, and sharing his thoughts as pictures on social media.

Synopsis

There are many wise, practical, and academic books that explore the relationship between pets and their owners; Mike & Scrabble is not one of them. Instead, this picture book for adults gives an insight into the mind of a dog who has acquired a slightly damaged human, and sets about trying to train him.

There are many wise, practical, and academic books that explore the relationship between pets and their owners; Mike & Scrabble is not one of them.

Mike & Scrabble's simple illustrations and one-line observations were originally designed by Mike, despite what Scrabble says, as posts for Twitter and Facebook, to joke about becoming a dog owner. The posts gathered a following of loyal fans, mainly dog owners (about 90%), mainly women (about 55%), and mostly English or American (70%). Except for one fan in Vietnam.

This is a book that dogs will buy, but as they have trouble using an iPad and don't keep money on them, it may well be attractive to their Human pets.

Independent Reviews

Mike Dick’s cartoons started out as snippets online, and their popularity soon garnered a cult following. It’s delightful to seem brought together as a brilliant story, and one that’s as uplifting as it is tongue-in-cheek.
Dogs Monthly

A  picture book … a series of funny, but sometimes sad images depicting the strange and often quirky behaviours between dogs and their humans!
…  totally unique … I can very much see something like this catching on very well. A beautifully presented book in such a simple fashion, published by Hubble and Hattie with their usual classy finish and presentation. A unique gift.
Dog Training Weekly

Mike & Scrabble is irresistible. Written by Scrabble, the internationally renowned Human Behavior Expert … Mike & Scrabble is also must read for humans ... Enjoy the wisdom, the humor and conversation starters …
Recommended for all readers over the age of 12.
