Publisher's Description

The city dog runs, sniffs, and explores the unfamiliar countryside for the first time.

Editorial Reviews

"The mixed-meter, rhymed verse is a joy to read aloud and strong enough to stand on its own without illustration. The complete running text of the poem is appended." Booklist, ALA

"A city dog gets a dream holiday in the country, and the reader gets a verbal and visual romp." The New York Times

"A noted poet takes young readers along on a city dog's first trip to the country. The animal barely knows what to do with her freedom-she walks, she barks, she runs with abandon. . . . Kuskin's watercolor-and-ink drawings are childlike and simple. The soft pastel colors, with deeper shadings, add visual impact to the lines. Short portions of the lilting text are set in or beneath each of the illustrations, and are easily visible through the use of large type. . . . Replete with the imagery one has come to expect from Kuskin, this story in verse is a treat." School Library Journal
