Hardcover with DJ in Good (G) condition. DJ has rip on the back; otherwise clean and straight. Pages still crisp.
Playful vignettes capture the hilarious antics of five spirited and individual dogs as they interact with each other and the children who care for them. Whether rolling in mud, being chased by a cat, or serenading the moon, these animals are in a constant flurry of activity. Each double page spread includes a brief rhyming description of typical canine activity, with all the ways a dog can be "dirty and smelly," "curious and clumsy," or "pleased as can be." Smaller pictures show a variety of minor dramas, from Hamish the Scotch Terrier's chase of a mouse to Heather the retriever's ongoing pursuit of a large duck. These rambunctious canines will delight dog lovers, and may win over some readers who have been uncertain about dogs.
