About This Book
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 lovable 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.
Karen Beaumont’s swift, bouncy counting text and David Catrow’s singular knack for creating mischievous, loveable, and delightfully ungainly dogs make this an exuberant and satisfying read-aloud. Kids of all ages are sure to have it on heavy rotation.
Praise for Doggone Dogs!
"Catrow's signature watercolor-and-pencil illustrations are bouncy and spirited... In the crowded arena of dog stories, this one stands out from the pack." — Kirkus Reviews
"The frenetic, goofy-looking dogs of various sizes and breeds romping through the park are sure to bring smiles to young faces." — School Library Journal
