This book has celebrated it's 50th year. I read this book to my children and recently my youngest son bought it for his 5 year old daughter and told her "Gramma used to read this to me." She loves Harry. I purchased this book for another grandchild. His Dad remembered the book too. Apparently, Harry is a memorable fellow!

An Absolute Must
This is an absolute must in your child's book collection. My two year old son has this book practically memorized. He loves Harry and all the adventures he encounters getting dirty. We also have "No Roses for Harry" and "Harry by the Sea". There are times we read all three before he goes to bed at night.
Publishers Weekly, 2002-06-03 Children's NOTES Good Reads, Reissued This summer, old and new favorites get a second run. Originally published in 1956, Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion, illus. by Margaret Bloy Graham, chronicles the messy adventures of a runaway canine and his transformation "from a white dog with black spots to a black dog with white spots." Despite his showboating, his family doesn't recognize him until he's scrubbed clean. In this reissued edition, Graham has added splashes of color to some of her original pictures.
