My Dog Romeo (Akashic Books)

“My Dog Romeo”—a single on More Family Time, the follow-up children’s album to the GRAMMY Award–winning Family Time—is a playful and endearing tribute to Ziggy Marley’s beloved pet dog Romeo. Opening with Romeo’s barking, Marley sings of his great love and friendship with his four-legged friend.

Now, with beautiful illustrations by Ag Jatkowska—illustrator of Marley’s debut picture book, I Love You Too—My Dog Romeo becomes a vibrant picture book that follows a child and a dog throughout their days, sharing their love of music and play. The perfect accompaniment to Marley’s charming children’s album, My Dog Romeo is sure to be a hit among young, old, and, of course, our furry friends.

ZIGGY MARLEY is an eight-time GRAMMY Award winner, Emmy Award winner, author, philanthropist, and reggae icon. He has released thirteen albums to much critical acclaim, and is the author of the children’s books I Love You TooMy Dog RomeoMusic Is in Everything, and Little John Crow (with his wife, Orly Marley); as well as the Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook.
