About This Book
Bestselling award-winners Don and Audrey Wood present a day in the life of an adorable pug who loves to take naps, and helps children learn how to tell time!
Loving, playful, and outgoing, Duffy makes it clear why pug dogs are one of America's most popular and beloved pets. In addition, as we follow Duffy through his gentle adventures, a clock is cleverly tucked into each illustration, showing children the time of day-and helping them learn how to tell time!
Like most pugs, Duffy loves to sleep, and from the time he wakes for breakfast to the time he prepares for bed, Duffy's day is punctuated by delicious naps: the Before Breakfast Nap; the After Breakfast Nap; the Late Morning Nap; and so on. When his best friend, a playful girl, comes home from school, Duffy helps her with her homework, followed by his Early Evening Nap.
With their typical wry humor, the Woods end their story with Duffy and his friend wearing matching pajamas in bed, reading a book. Is Duffy sleepy now? Of course not.
