My Senator and Me, A Dog’s-Eye View of Washington, D.C.

Written by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, illustrated by David Small

There’s an old saying: “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” A few years ago, Senator Ted Kennedy decided to do just that.

Now his dog, Champion Amigo’s Seventh Wave is the most famous canine on Capitol Hill. Come follow Senator Kennedy and Splash through one whirlwind day in D.C. as they work to pass an important law that will help schools across the United States.

“Small’s shifting perspectives capture the shimmering lights viewed from a moving tram, the glory of the soaring Capitol rotunda, the heartfelt affection in a beloved dog’s eyes.”
