Summary: A greyhound and groundhog chase each other and play, with the text mirroring the increasingly frantic pace of the illustrations. It starts with “A hound. A round hound. A greyhound.”, then moves on to “A hog. A round hog. A groundhog.” The two start chasing each other, and pretty soon, there are six sets of action pictures on a two-page spread with the words twisting around the illustrations, “A round hound, a grey dog, a round little hound dog. A greyhog, a ground dog, a hog little hound dog.” The two chase butterflies through a bog and a hollow log before finally collapsing together on the ground. 32 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: A playful book that would be loads of fun to read out loud.
Cons: The plot is pretty thin.
