Product Details


“The perfect read for those seeking respite from the seemingly endless stream of unsettling events in the news these days . . . The pages . . . present a variety of insights about everyday pleasures and demonstrate the value of living in the moment and treating our companions with respect and affection. The text is accompanied by charming line drawings . . . which add to the energy, depth and warmth of the writing. Pet owners will chuckle knowingly about the way the speakers shift between simple observations and deeper statements . . . that remind us why humans need animals as much as they need us.”
The Washington Post

“Prepare for your heart to melt as you read Darling, I Love You, a touching and poetic tribute to the furry friends in our lives. . . . This illustrated collection is a must-have for anyone who considers their dog (or any animal) a best friend.”
Bustle (11 Heartwarming Books For Dog-Lovers)

“Amid the current swirl of angry words, Darling, I Love You is balm for the soul. . . . Patrick McDonnell’s delightful illustrations . . . beautifully and whimsically capture the essence of joy. . . . Ladinsky’s deeply spiritual sense is evident in his expressions of awe and reverence.”
The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“This lovely, moving book is simply a delight. . . . [It will] inspire wonder and make you want to slow down and go pat your dog. This sweet and beautiful book would make an absolutely wonderful gift for yourself or a loved one.”
Modern Dog Magazine

“Charming . . . Ladinsky’s simple but poignant poems, accompanied by illustrations of the beloved MUTTS characters, invite readers to slow down and see the goodness and grace that are all around us—and to give thanks. . . . [An] insightful book and one that you’ll likely turn to again and again for its gentle humor and playful reminders of the things that truly matter.”

“A really sweet book . . . Each time I crack open Darling, I Love You it makes me appreciate my little furry friends even more. I also find myself feeling better about life in general . . . I think that’s what poetry is all about.”
