Review:
Filled with Hurd's trademark loose lines and brightly-hued colors, this book is utter, charming nonsense. Arthur is a mild, art-loving guard dog at the Dogopolis Museum of Art. He spends evenings reading quietly in his little apartment in West 17th Street. ..unless the moon is full. Then he is transformed into "Art Dog" who fills the city with extravagant street art. One night the museum is robbed and Art Dog is falsely accused and thrown in jail. Later, all is happily resolved.
