NOBODY’S DIGGIER THAN A DOG by Susan Campbell Bartoletti

Released: Feb. 1, 2005

"Bartoletti's bouncy, poetic text is well matched with Giacobbe's playful pooches, complemented by creative text placement and varying fonts that match the cavorting canine conduct. (Picture book. 3-6)"
Bartoletti and Giacobbe collaborate again in this lively sequel to Nobody's Nosier Than a Cat (2003) and in fact, the starring cat from that work plays a supporting role as feline foil in the sequel. Read full book review >
