“How the Rhodesian Ridgeback Got Its Ridge” is a charmingly illustrated and cleverly written fable, about how this breed of dog from southern Africa got the trademark stripe of hair on its back. In this whimsical creation tale, God surveys the various dogs He has created, and, in ticking off their idiosyncracies, decides to try one more time in creating the perfect canine. But in making a dog that is as smart as it is beautiful, God sets the stage for a mishap that leads to unintended consequences. If you love Ridgebacks and want to share that passion with a younger generation – or if you just love a clever story, beautifully told and illustrated — this is the book for you.
