No sooner are these ten doggone dogs out the front door than they?re into a hilarious antic misadventure: disrupting the prim pups at the Perfect Pooch Obedience School, raining chaos on the playground, and?oops!?making one, two, three, four, ten stinky doggie poops. But when our loveable pups get nabbed by the Super Duper Pooper Scooper Pet Patrol? Well, you?ll just have to read it to find out what happens next.
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : I have a mental list of illustrators whose talent is undeniable. David Catrow, in my humble opinion, is one of those special people who can take ANY reader…young or old…on a delightful journey just through sharing his illustrations with us! And when you combine that artwork with an amazingly hilarious rhyming story like author, Karen Beaumont, give us, you have a winning combination that is hard to beat! A wonderful addition to any library!
