New Book About White House Dog Bo

A deal has already been done to publish “Bo America’s Commander In Leash”, a children’s book that is due to be released next week.

According to Mascot Books, the publisher, the book will follow “Bo on an exciting adventure as he learns all about the White House and experiences the traditions that make it such a special place.”

The book will feature guest appearances by Mr Obama, his wife Michelle Obama, Senator Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden the Vice President. It has been written by Naren Aryal, founder of Mascot Books, and illustrated by Danny Moore, one of its employees.
Mr Aryal told the New York Times he and Mr Moore had been working on the project for about two months, leaving space for pictures of the dog, once it was chosen. He added that the Obamas’ two daughters Sasha and Malia are not named in the book because he wanted to protect their privacy. Bo Obama blog
