Review: GoD and DoG by Wendy Francisco


GOD AND DOG is a phenomenon. First appearing on YouTube, the video of Wendy Francisco's charming animated illustrations and moving song tells of the unconditional love of both God and Dog.

With over 2 million YouTube viewings to date, Francisco's story appeals to all ages, to animal enthusiasts, to people of religious persuasions, and especially to anyone who has been loved by a dog.

Now in book format, Wendy's touching narrative will be expanded on through additional lyrics, illustrations, photographs and some of the powerful mail that is continually being sent to Francisco.

The Elliott Review:

I enjoy this book because it's fun and seriously deep all at the same time. It amazes me that truths about God and his grace can be displayed through human's interaction with a dog. The illustrations in this little book - perfect for gift giving - are cute and fun, and they ignite in me all that I love about my dog while the powerful metaphor reminds me of the truth about God. Whether or not one is familiar with the YouTube video from which this book originates, it is still bound to fill the reader with encouragement and a bit of insight.
