A comical yet thought-provoking story, "Norman, Speak!" follows a boy and his family who adopt a dog that just can t seem to learn the things other dogs do. Overwhelmed by dogs in need at the local animal shelter, a young boy chooses Norman, the stray who has been there the longest. But, upon bringing him home, the family quickly learns that Norman won t respond to commands. He doesn t even know his own name. During a chance encounter with another dog owner in the park, the family is very surprised to learn the reason for Norman s confusion; he speaks Chinese instead of English! And so the family enrolls in a language class, determined to understand their uniquely loveable pet. The humorous text from award-winning author Caroline Adderson and Qin Leng s delightful illustrations combine to create a picture book that will be enjoyed by readers (and dogs) no matter what language they speak."
