About the Author

Alexandra Day is the creator and illustrator of Good Dog, Carl and the remainder of the beloved Carl books, including Carl Goes Shopping, Carl’s Christmas, Carl’s Birthday and Carl’s Snowy Afternoon. The Darlings’ own dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, used to be the original model for the main character of Good Dog, Carl. Since then, two other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the sequels: the late Arambarri, who used to be named for one of the crucial Darlings’ favorite jai alai players; and Zabala, who currently moonlights as an Our Best Friend therapy dog, visiting hospitals to cheer patients.
