About the Author

Alexandra Day is the author and illustrator of Good Dog, Carl and the rest of the beloved Carl books, including Carl Goes Shopping, Carl's Christmas, Carl's Birthday and Carl's Snowy Afternoon. The Darlings' own dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the original model for the main character of Good Dog, Carl. Since then, two other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the sequels: the late Arambarri, who was named for one of the Darlings' favorite jai alai players; and Zabala, who currently moonlights as an Our Best Friend therapy dog, visiting hospitals to cheer patients.

Carl and Madeleine are yet in another fun-filled adventure. They are curious about the supposed to be surprise party and decide to sneak in and spy as Mom gets ready for the party. Carl and Madeleine again get into dilemas that only they can solve. In the end like always Carl is rewarded for being a good dog.

A book without words shows Carl and Madeline arising from their nap to inspect the preparations for Carl the Dog's birthday

This book is unique in the way that it only has words on the first and last pages. On the first page, the mom asks her neighbor if Carl (the dog) and Madeleine (her daughter) could nap at her house so that she can prepare for Carl's surprise party. But, Madeleine and Carl's adventure, as depicted by only pictures, starts with drinking punch, opening presents, tasting the cake. At the end, is a picture of the surprise party and Madeleine's mother thinking they really fooled Carl.
