Click-Clack Waddle-Waddle Dot-Dot Dewey Dew is back in this sequel to Time For (Earth) School, Dewey Dew. Dewey is starting to love life on Earth, and he'd be happy to tell everyone, but there's just one problem: he can't pronounce the word love. This makes things difficult, especially when a classmate teases him. With the help of his understanding classmates and his teacher, Dewey finally succeeds in declaring his love for Earth and his friends.

Praise For How Do You Say I Love You, Dewey Dew?

"Mack's pencil, watercolor, and digital illustrations work in tandem with Staub's marvelously inventive language to ensure readers understand Dewey's Eighty-N words. And the characters' facial expressions and posture speak volumes all on their own. A powerful message about the support of friends and defusing a bully wrapped in a sweet Valentine tale." -- Kirkus Reviews
