From Barnes & NobleSpectacular design, imaginative descriptions, and a whole lotta love fill the pages of this fresh tale. One young boy states his immense affection and admiration for his very big, bouncy, slobbery dog. Each layout introduces a new set of adjectives with matching illustrations. "A big, red, happy, muddy smart dog!" exclaims one page, showing the brainy canine covered in mud and reading a stack of books that include Sherlock Bones and My Life as a Boy. Each adjective appears in a different color and font, providing younger readers with a visual aid to the many wondrous traits of this fantastic pooch. The young boy ends his praise with his own unfinished drawing of himself and his furry friend.
The unique format of the book, with tall and narrow pages, allows every image and word to shine through. The stark white background also provides a clean canvas for these airbrushed images. All text is printed in bold type, adding balance to the images and giving youngsters a clear view of each word. Exclamation points abound, emphasizing how proud the boy is of the muddy mutt.
