This level 1 reader uses funny dogs to introduce opposite words. There's a dirty dog and a clean dog, a mean dog and a nice dog, and many more! Plus, there's an extremely long dog who keeps popping into the story. The long dog adds humor to the book, and kids will be anxious to turn the pages all the way to the end! Young readers will enjoy Eric Seltzer's bright illustrations and rhythmic, easy-to-read text.

SELECT REVIEWS:

  • Praise for The Long Dog:
    *"The tight structure, comic vignettes, and touch of wordplay lift this well above the usual beginning reader in its cleverness; the book also keeps its readership in mind with its careful patterning and helpful illustrative decoding hints. The art is simple but zesty.… The casual roundness and deep silliness to the pooches occasionally recalls James Marshall, and the climactic spread…provides an enjoyable callback and a bit of hunt-and-ID fun. Even non-dog fans will appreciate the exuberant contrasts [and] the jocular illustrations." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review
