Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beware!

When Old Seadog decides on "one last sail," he invites his good friends Brave Beagle and Dear Dachshund along for the ride.

But the sea is filled with danger — storms rage and pirates abound!

Will the three friends end up as dog meat?

Come set sail and sing along with this boisterous canine crew.

Who knows what surprises lay in wait?

Review:

"Siegel puts his all-canine cast on stage for a rousing musical tale played out in cartoon panels....Chock full of visual jokes and wonderfully clever turns of phrase, this is a genuine howl from first scene to last." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A] bouncy, colorful picture book that unfolds in detailed, comics-like panels....A delightful book to share with pre-readers, who can return to the pictures on their own and relive the tandem stories of a grown-up night out and an epic voyage." Francisca Goldsmith, Booklist

Review:

"Readers may find themselves skipping Wheeler's lengthy songs in favor of Siegel's pictorial storytelling, which keeps this sometimes soggy yarn-within-a-yarn afloat." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Wheeler and Siegel do many things well in their comic-book-style story, but an unnecessarily convoluted plot ultimately sinks this lighthearted adventure....With not enough action and too much verse, this venture comes up short." School Library Journal

Review:

"Energetic and vibrantly colored pen-and-ink cartoons play the slapstick and swashbuckling to the hilt....Adults will fully appreciate the sophisticated humor, and seven-year-olds with a knowledge of dogs...should find plenty to tickle their funny bones as well." Hornbook

Synopsis:

A motley crew of dogs presents a rhyming tale of seagoing adventure.
