Stuck in The Doghouse: A Children’s Story About the Coronavirus is a brilliant children’s book told from the perspective of Duke the Dog that teaches children about the coronavirus.
The story is told from the perspective of Duke the Dog who wakes up on an ordinary day and sets off to explore his neighborhood only to find his favorite places are either closed or offering curb side and take out only. Even the library and church are closed. Duke encounters all the things that humans are experiencing, including hoarders fighting over toilet paper, and doctors who are giving great advice about how to deal with the crisis.
“The whole book was entirely Gwen Sterk’s (owner of the real dog Duke—a golden doodle) idea,” author K.P Lynne explains. “Being a family law attorney, the well-being of all children is very near and dear to her heart. The purpose of the book is to help children realize they are not stuck at home…they are safe at home.”
K.P Lynne has previously written or co-written several #1 best-selling books, including Today Is Your Gift, Open Your Present, All I Want For Christmas Is A Cure For Cancer, Hock E. Puck Meets Hock E. Stick, Pucknapped!, Litty Kitter 4 President and Queasy Street (With the late Emmy Award Winner Joe Alaskey). The book was edited by Bob Feldman, who previously co-wrote Bobster the Kind Little Lobster with K.P. Lynne. He is one the nation’s leading young entrepreneurs and owns the Nothing Bundt Cakes store in Orland Park, IL. A fictional version of his store appears in Stuck in the Doghouse: A Children’s Story About the Coronavirus.
