Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Bow-Wow is like Bee-Bop; you can read it quick or spend your time with it. Either way, it swings."--Mo Willems
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What are the sounds that animals make? A little bird tries a variety of sounds—honk, splash, tick-tock, all of which elicit a big NO from Bow-Wow. Finally, the little bird lets out a very loud Peep! and Bow-Wow responds with a big Woof! This is a very simple board book with only one word per page, and since the animals who might make some of the sounds are not depicted its real value at teaching animal sounds is questionable, but it is amusing. For those who are older (grandparents reading this book), the endpapers may also elicit some chuckles. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

In this short board book aimed at toddlers, Bow-Wow comes across a chick. A chick who seems to be a little confused!

"Honk," the chick proclaims. And Bow-Wow quickly answers "No." And he continues to say no as the chick tries out a variety of sounds. This dog isn't going anywhere until his new friend gets it right!

Young children will love the bright illustrations, especially the cross look on Bow-Wow's face when the chick comes up with a new sound. Parents will like the sturdy board pages of the construction, and the introduction to new words and sounds.
