In this companion to Mary Sullivan's Geisel Award-winning Ball, there's a new dog in town and he is focused on finding a treat, no matter the cost. But endless tricks and futile searching (you can't eat Grandma's dentures!) can be pretty exhausting. Just when he's about to give up hope . . . what's this? TREAT! In this hilarious and heartwarming graphic novel/ picture book hybrid, readers will rejoice and laugh as they recognize the silly, but always determined, behavior of man's best friend."

Editorial Reviews

* Sullivan spins a hilarious minidrama around a hyperactive canine and a single word of text? Cartoonlike illustrations, precisely drawn in digitally colored pencil, perfectly capture the portly, perky-eared, wide-eyed canine's treat mania. - Kirkus , STARRED review * "Sullivan has created quite a treat herself: a canine hero with a one-track mind and an endlessly expressive one-word vocabulary (aided by comically frenetic typography) whose approach to thwarted desire is, as any child will recognize, all too human." - Publishers Weekly , STARRED review "Sullivan's digitally colored pencil illustrations are packed with imagination, energy, and humor, and the dog's many emotions are captured particularly well. Kids will eat up this over-the-top ode to snacks." - Booklist " This is a welcome addition to the series and any collection." - School Library Journal "
