Simple text paired with large, toothy dog grins make this book a surefire hit with beginning readers!

Young readers will enjoy Eric Seltzer's bright illustrations and rhythmic, easy-to-read text.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Long Dog: * "The tight structure, comic vignettes, and touch of wordplay lift this well above the usual beginning reader in its cleverness; the book also keeps its readership in mind with its careful patterning and helpful illustrative decoding hints. The art is simple but zesty.. The casual roundness and deep silliness to the pooches occasionally recalls James Marshall, and the climactic spread.provides an enjoyable callback and a bit of hunt-and-ID fun. Even non-dog fans will appreciate the exuberant contrasts [and the jocular illustrations." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review "The Long Dog.demonstrates how an imaginative creator can energize the classic restricted vocabulary beginning reader, as Seltzer plays on pattern and concept while maintaining a lively narrative rhythm and pulling off a satisfying ongoing joke in this amusing overview of dogs." -- Center for Children's Books (2016 Gryphon Honor Book)
