FLIT-FLIT flapped the flea in the scruffy dog's hair. "AAROOF!" howled the stray as he jumped in the air.
AWOOMPH was the sound as he dropped like a sack, landing THUD! "OH CRUD!" on an old man's back.

A little itch on a big dog makes for HUGE chaos, but their adventure also leads to a lasting friendship. And when the flea finally jumps from the dog to a stray cat, who jumps onto a lonely lady, the cycle begins anew. Playful language and sound effects and zany, action-packed illustrations make for a surefire story-time hit.
