“A delightful little excursion for busy imaginations.”--Booklist

"A superb, witty book that will appeal both to squirmy, clueless kids and educated art connoisseurs."-Horn Book, starred

“Rogers’s visual narrative is both an aesthetic treat and masterful storytelling.”-School Library Journal, starred

Format: Hardcover
The main character in the story is being chased by bullies. He finds refuge inside a museum. While in the building encounters a dog from one of the paintings. The dog then joins him an adventure inside another painting. It is a wordless book, letting he child use their imagination to draw from the pictures what they think the story should be like.

Format: Hardcover
We originally took this book out from the library for our 1.5 year old daughter. There are no words in the book, which allows you to not only elaborate on details that your child cares about, but also lets them page through the book on their own at their own pace. My 1.5 year old is obsessed with books, and particularly loves these books in this series. (We have two). Even though the age range here says 5-9, my 1.5 year old fully understands what's going on, is able to point to the soccer ball, and the doggie and follow along with the story. Every time we finish reading the book she exclaims: "AGAIN!" and wants to go through the book all over again. The story is pretty long, and the way that I tell it is pretty involved, so I'm usually very exhausted after one time through. That's the beauty of the books though, as there are no directions on how to tell it. You have to put in some work to explain this book to a small child. It's so worth it. I am also very happy to say that this book is wonderful for children of multiple languages. Our daughter is being raised bi-lingual, and this is allows us tell the story in both languages. Highly recommended!!!!

We are both comic book fans, and this book is so well done. Rich story, with cute drawings of a boy and a dog. I do not grow tired of it at all and am so glad we decided to purchase this for our own collection.
