I set off one morning in my little red canoe.
My dog wagged his tail.
"Can I come, too?"
"You bet," I said.
"A trip for two-just me and you."

When a girl and her dog set out on a canoe trip together, they're expecting a quiet afternoon for two. Then a beaver decides to join them, even when the girl protests that "It's a one-dog canoe." And when a loon, and a wolf, and a bear, and a moose all ask for a ride, it's almost too much. But they all manage to fit in this one-dog canoe-until a frog comes along. . . .

Editorial Reviews

"Rhyming text sets a buoyant tone, as do debut artist Hoyt's lively illustrations. . . . Readers will happily embark on this animated excursion." -Publishers Weekly"A girl sets out on a canoe ride and is joined by her dog, then a variety of animal passengers. . . . Hoyt, in his children's book debut, plays with perspective . . . [while] Casanova's rhyming text employs a familiar cumulative twist as each animal requests a ride." -Kirkus Reviews"A lively rhyming text and wry sense of humor take a wide-eyed, ponytailed little girl and her dog on an adventurous trip down the river. . . . Their inevitable big splash will surely elicit giggles." -School Library Journal
