Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
This playful, participatory rhyming text eagerly invites readers to bark with a rowdy dog, chomp with a greedy dog, snooze with a sleepy dog, cool off with a hot dog, hunt with a sniffer dog, sing along with a pack of puppy dogs and beware of guard dogs, itchy dogs and yappy dogs. Noise words in a giant typeface just beg kids to join in and "woof," "rruff," "chomp," "munch," "hrumph," "zzzzz," "gruff," "grrr," "scritch," "scratch," "scruff," "yip," "yap," "slurp," "sniffle," "snaffle" and "aroo." A bevy of amusing dogs rendered in bold colors and dramatic angles engaged in comic activities enlivens the already lively text. A bee-tormented bulldog is the guard dog, a dreaming pit bull represents the sleepy dog, a flea-infested terrier represents the itchy dog, a perky pug is the yappy dog while the inevitable elongated dachshund symbolizes the hot dog. With its guttural growls, baleful barking and raucous racket, this onomatopoetic tribute to canine cacophony will have wee readers simply howling. (Picture book. 2-5)
Children's Literature
A number of dogs are shown behaving in typical dog fashion and making a variety of dog noises. "Watch your feet, it's yappy dog...Yip! Snap! Yap! Cool down with hot dog...Pant! Slurp! Lap!" Thick pages with few words and large font print make this book friendly, but the lack of story will not demand a second reading. The dogs and their behavior are shown on double-page spreads from a floor level perspective. The rhyming text will be useful for beginning readers, as will the upper and lower case use of a large font. The dogs are not identified, though each seems to be a pure breed, and labeling would have been easy enough. This title, originally published in England, is an additional purchase, at best. 2000, Tricycle Press, $14.95. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer: Candace Deisley
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-In this colorful picture book, children are invited to make "-noise and do some doggy stuff!" Double-page spreads with bright backgrounds show various canines doing what they do best. Young readers can "Join in with barking dog-Arf! Woof! Rruff," "Chow down with hungry dog-Chomp! Munch! Chew," or "Curl up with sleepy dog-Hrumph! Zzzzz! Shew-." Although the text is a bit forced, Fuge's canines are wonderfully illustrated, with charming, expressive faces that add life to the story. Given the abundance of good children's books featuring these pets, consider this title as a supplemental purchase, likely to please die-hard dog lovers.-Melinda Piehler, North Tonawanda Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    We picked this book from our public library.  This is something

    We picked this book from our public library. 
    This is something I would say that would capture the younger kids being as the pictures will keep them engaged and it would be great for those learning to read as there are just a few words on the page and they are easy to read.
    The pictures made us laugh and our favorite dog was the wiener dog. As it says in the book "Cool down with a hot dog." Silly book but I wouldn't call it a sing-along book.

    Love the Dogs

    I have 7 dogs and my granddaughter loves each one. So when I saw this book each dog reminds me of my dogs. The pictures are great and each page looks like a day at my house. My granddaughter laughs and wants to read it over and over
