    I liked the simple illustrations of this book. If you can read this really fast, it is tongue-twisting fun. ...

    it’s a delightful book of joyous pictures and spare text where two unlikely creatures, a greyhound and a groundhog meet, frolic, and on page after page go around and around, until they meet something that “astounds”. fun to see and enjoy, especially for young children. ...
