Bring Bullfrog the Dog into Your Home

As part of our virtual celebration of Joanna Rose’s new novel, A Small Crowd of Strangers, we are asking readers to invite Bullfrog, the dog on the cover, into their lives.

Participation is easy. Print out this 8.5 x 11 image featuring large and small versions of Bullfrog. Cut one or both out. Pose the dog by your pets, with your plants, or wherever you wish. You can also color him or make costumes for him. He’s your very own dog paper doll!

Here at Forest Ave headquarters, we have taped the large Bullfrog to a cooking skewer and planted him alongside one of our resident guinea pigs. Her name is Sweet Potato.

A Small Crowd of Strangers is forthcoming from Forest Avenue Press on Tuesday, Sept. 15. If you post Bullfrog on social media, be sure to use the hashtag #bullfrogthedog so we can find him! Bullfrog is a character in the novel as well as being featured on the cover.

Powell’s Books will host a virtual launch event with Joanna and poet Susan Leslie Moore on Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Annie Bloom’s Books will host Joanna Rose with Forest Ave author Stevan Allred on Thursday, Oct. 8.

If you want to share the Bullfrog project on social media and encourage others to play along, feel free to share the Bullfrog image and this handy instruction square:
