Ehlert creates a fun picture book that plays with the typical sounds dogs make (e.g. "Ralph, Ralph!," "Roof,Roof!," "Rough,Rough!"). The book is illustrated with collages, and is great for children who love dogs and caregivers who love puns. It's especially fun to read if you read the words like dog sounds.

A cute book that plays with the sounds of words. A good book to read to work on phonological awareness.

My kids 3 and 5 loved this simple, yet funny story. My 3 year old especially asked to read this over and over. Very cute.

Great book for storytime! Short and funny. I wasn't a big fan of the artwork but it's always good to expose kids to different styles of illustrations.
