Author(s): Mary Sullivan
As the old saying goes, Give a dog a ball, and he'll beg to play for days. But give a dog a treat, and he ll never stop begging. 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."
* "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""
