Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

The team behind Dogs Don't Brush Their Teeth returns with an even more outrageous canine adventure, illustrated with digitally enhanced photos to an almost comic book-like effect. On "one special night," golden retriever Homer sneaks out to join his teammates, the "Doggers," in a baseball game against the "Hounds" (endpapers feature baseball cards of the players from both teams, identifying their breeds). The dogs assume human poses and wear digitally drafted uniforms as they take the field; meanwhile dog fans yowl, yip, and enjoy ballpark treats in the bleachers. The artwork is filled with humorous details-from border terrier Rocket relieving himself on a fire hydrant before hitting a single, to a closeup of Homer clutching the bat as his fans swoon. The game-time tension, along with the innate goofiness of the artwork, could make this a dog-eared favorite. Ages 4-8. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
