Description

A hilariously interactive picture book that will have kids barking, growling . . . and chirping—but mostly laughing out loud. A companion to the popular Cat Secrets by Jef Czekaj.

Two dogs must teach their new puppy to be a good dog.

The puppy has to learn to growl . . . but it keeps tweeting.

Roll over . . . but it eats worms. . . .

Will this puppy ever learn the Dog Rules?

— Publishers Weekly

Praise for OINK-A-DOODLE-MOO: “The simple compositions, dynamic posed animals, bright colors, and large word bubbles will make this as successful with larger groups as it will be with an audience of a few.”
— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for CAT SECRETS: “There’s readalone potential here as well as readaloud, but most of all there’s pretend-to-be-a-kitty potential, and kids will find the opportunity irresistible.”
— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for CAT SECRETS: “The book has obvious appeal as a read-aloud, with its instructions and large-format cartoons, but it has the intimacy of a story to be read independently.”
— School Library Journal

— Booklist

Praise for CAT SECRETS: “Expressive, high-contrast, high-energy cartoons.”
— Publishers Weekly
