"Tinka is a cool dog, a school dog, a breaking-all-the-rules dog. A hall dog, a ball dog, a crash-into-the-wall dog." Join Tinka, a dandy, sandy Golden Retriever, as she unexpectedly visits her owner at school and helps his class learn to read. Bright illustrations rendered in acrylic paint add to the excitement in this playful back-to-school story about a boy and his "loves-to-hear-a-book" dog.
