Dogs everywhere! Dogs running! Dogs chasing! Dogs splashing! Surprise ending!
This book was a serendipitous find. It needed a new sticker, so one of my coworkers opened it up after fixing it and started laughing. Well, then I had to read it. There is only one word in this book that has more than one syllable. It’s fanTAStic for that very beginning reader. But better than that, it’s FUNNY! It’s that one word that has two syllables that makes this book hilarious. And Meisel’s illustrations that accompany it, of course. I know little about the Geisel Medal winners and honor books. However, knowing that this won one makes complete sense.
