Harry the Dirty Dog is a children's book written by Gene Zion and illustrated by Margaret Bloy Graham. Originally published in black and white in 1956, it was reprinted in 2002 with splashes of color added by the original artist. Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association named the book one of its "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children."


The family dog, Harry, disenchanted with taking baths, buries the bathtub scrubber and runs away from home. Harry gets dirty and returns home only to find his family does not recognize him. His attempts to get his family to realize it's him only succeed when he brings back the brush he buried.


Harry the Dirty Dog received positive reviews. Kirkus Reviews called it "Another funnybone tickling charmer". Kids' Book Review found "Its timeless storyline, humour and sheer affection between the characters make the series an absolute delight for all ages." Common Sense Media commented "Expressive illustrations with old-fashioned charm." The book continues to be held in thousands of libraries worldwide.
