Captain Underpants creator Dav Pilkey brings together five funny, easy-to-read stories starring two feisty pooch pals, Big Dog and Little Dog.
Whether mistaking a skunk for a kitty or playing in the mud, these canines start each adventure innocently and get into antics that will keep you in stitches. "Making a Mistake" has Big Dog and Little Dog's outdoor walk leading to a foul run-in with the skunk -- and a big party mess -- while "Getting in Trouble" shows the two taking living room play time to ripped-couch levels. Similarly, "Going for a Walk" has them frolicking in dirt, puddles, and after-walk bath time, and the final story, "Wearing Sweaters," shows doggy teamwork so that Big Dog can have his own sweater.
These critters are a frisky pair that children, parents, and dog lovers will fall for. Pilkey's refreshing, bright illustrations convey a simple humor and underlying mischief that reflect a real doggy's personality through and through, and with all the Big Dog and Little Dog stories together in one valuable collection, the feisty antics and tail-wagging friendship are sure to make for a howling good time.
