If You Give a Dog a Donut (If You Give... Books)by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond
Synopses & Reviews
If you give a dog a donut, hell ask for some apple juice to go with it.
When you give him the juice, hell drink it all up.
Then, before you can say Woof . . . Dog is off on a backyard adventure!
The exuberant dog who first appeared in If You Give a Pig a Party is now the star of his very own book. Written in the irresistible If You Give tradition, if you give a dog a donut is another home run from the beloved team of Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.
"These veteran collaborators don't stray from the tried-and-true recipe for their If You Give... series in this addition, a buoyant, circular story in which a canine's spiraling free association leads to a day's worth of outdoor activities. As usual, Bond's clean, action-filled pictures, set against white backdrops, imbue the title character with abundant personality as he skips and dances his way through the pages. After his young host gives him a donut, the dog requests apple juice — and then seconds. Since there isn't any left, he skateboards outside to pick apples to make juice. Tossing an apple to the boy 'make him think of baseball,' so the two dabble in that sport, play pirates, have a water fight, and fly a kite, before the dog is again reminded of apple juice — and donuts. There's a definite boy slant to this story, which is a nice complement to the more girl-oriented installments in the series. Even readers whose dogs are less demanding than this one are likely to recognize his boundless energy in their own pets. Ages 3 – 7." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
