Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dog loves books, but one day he receives a strange one in the mail — it's blank! Soon, Dog realizes that this book is not for reading, but for drawing. Before long, Dog is doodling and drawing himself into a new world, full of friends and surprises.

Review:

"In this follow-up to Squish Rabbit, the titular bunny — picture a white balloon animal with a chunky black outline — has a few fears, including storms and chickens. But when his squirrel friend, Twitch, goes missing, Squish faces his greatest fear of all: the dark. Battersby has gentle fun with Squish's fears ('Squish worried that Twitch was trapped... in the dark... in a storm... with a chicken') without invalidating or demeaning them. She creates expressive characters with minimalistic lines, and Squish's world is a delightful collage of felt trees, giant chickens (made from yellow feathers), and torn-paper landscapes. Ages 3 — 5. Agent: Catherine Drayton, Inkwell Management. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Review:

"This book will inspire and entertain young artists and fun-loving readers alike." School Library Journal, Starred Review
