"A little dog can get up to big things "

Uh-oh Look out, house This little dog is very busy cheerfully digging up and chewing up everything in sight. It's a sad little dog who's locked up in the pen while the house and garden are tidied up. But all is not lost, as he's cautiously welcomed back up the steps and into the house to snuggle up at the end of the day.

Readers will have fun watching the antics of this little dog, and interpreting the animated facial expressions that range from determination and dejection to joy. While readers follow the dog from bad to good in rhythmic two- or three-word panels, they'll also learn how to use "up" phrases.
