ACHUKA Book of the Day 9 Jul 2021
“The bold digital illustrations, done in a minimal palette of black, white, and red, are full of spontaneity and ingeniousness; a delightful gatefold allows for an ordinary spotted dog to become extraordinarily long, accompanied by the also-expanding question “One that grows…and grows…and grows?” The simple but sophisticated graphic style is reminiscent of Michael Hall and Craig Frazier. Together, text and art will garner giggles for this perfect read-aloud with a surprise twist ending!” KIRKUS
“The digitally created illustrations pop off the page in flat black, white, red, and gray. Strong, simplified shapes of dogs being dogs are arranged dynamically to both please and surprise the eye.” SLJ
For dog owners, pet lovers, and parents of children clamoring for a dog: an absolute delight.
This hilarious rhyming texts takes us through twenty-seven unexpected and amusing varieties of dogs that one could have, like “one that begs, one that sheds, one that rips things into shreds.” And while the book is sure to delight any dog lover, the narrator’s choice at the end will make readers laugh out loud! See how many of these lovable and amusing pups you can recognize from your own life.
