author: Carlie Sorosiak
Ever since Cosmo became a big brother to Max ten years ago, he’s known what his job was: to protect Max and make him happy. Through many good years of tennis balls and pilfered turkey, torn-up toilet paper and fragrant goose poop, Cosmo has doggedly kept his vow. But now, with Dad-scented blankets appearing on the couch and arguing voices getting louder, Cosmo senses a tougher challenge ahead. When Max gets the idea to teach them both a dance routine for a contest, Cosmo can’t refuse, even with his stiff hips. Max wants to remind his folks of all the great times they’ve had together—and make them forget about the horrible D-word. Told in the open, optimistic, and unintentionally humorous voice of a golden retriever, I, Cosmo will grab readers from the first page—and remind them that love and loyalty transcend whatever life throws your way.
“Sorosiak offers Cosmo a combination of wisdom and innocence that feels truly dog-like. . . . Touching, bittersweet, and true.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
