Description

When the going gets tough, Dog . . . takes a nap
Dog can "Sit."
He can "Stay."
He can even "Dance."
But when he's in charge, can he keep the cats in line?
All one, two, three, four, five of them?
Illustrated by Caldecott winner, Dan Santat, and packed full of slapstick silliness and utterly earnest charm, Dog will quickly wiggle his way into preschoolers' hearts.
