Dayle Ann Dodds has written children’s books about math, singing cows, colors, shapes, and pets who need a bath. Her work has been known to “leave young readers in stitches” (School Library Journal) and praised for its “exuberant and expert rhyme” (Publishers Weekly). A fan of the drama and fun of the circus, she created Where’s Pup? as a mystery that would make use of a wonderful setting. Dayle Ann Dodds lives in California.
