Overview

Rhythmic text combines with delightfully entertaining illustrations in this humorous story for construction-loving kids about getting what you work for.

Someone has done a lot of work. Someone has been driving a bulldozer, operating a cement mixer, and using a forklift to build a big, strong home for Jack. But is this the house that Jack built? One tired puppy dog disagrees.
