Summary: In page after page of tail-wagging fun, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Spike Lee and his wife, Beacon Award-winning producer Tonya Lewis Lee, take a close-up look at what happens when a couple of high-energy toddlers meet their match in an adventurous pup who has no plans of letting up. Irresistible illustrations by Coretta Scott King Award winner Kadir Nelson unleash countless memorable moments of toddlerhood, and puppyhood, which families with four-legged friends will enjoy over and over again…

My thoughts: Illustrations are irresistible in this book. Drawn from unusual angles, they are an absolute pleasure to look at. The text is simple enough to read to a very young child, or for an older child begining to read. Rhymes give a good rhythm to the text. Two adorable curly-headed children – a boy and a girl – learn to tame a puppy and try their best to care properly after the dog. A story of independance, friendship and laughs. A very good read.
