Reviews

* "In this gem of an early reader, a cast of cavorting canines find more than they expected when they start digging . . . Using just a few words and extremely short sentences, Meisel delivers a funny story with a real plot containing several surprises. His cartoon-style illustrations in watercolor with pen-and-ink and pencil details capture the canine personalities and create deliciously spooky (but not really scary) villains in the pirate ghosts. New readers will dig this."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"This whimsical choice for emergent readers should engender conversation about the element of surprise."--Booklist

"Despite relying upon a straightforward narrative, Meisel still infuses the plot with fun and whimsy . . . These well-intentioned but mischievous dogs are truly winsome characters; their wide-eyed expressions, furrowed brows, and lolling tongues will readily endear them to children. A must-have for novice readers."--School Library Journal

"Beginning readers will easily handle the short, simple sentences, and the illustrations offer tons of visual humor."--The Horn Book Guide

"This new companion to the author's 2011 book, See Me Run, is another rollicking romp with this pack of digging canines. . . . Cartoon-like watercolor, pen-and-ink and pencil drawings combined with very simple sentences and vocabulary make this a delightful reading adventure for primary students."--Reading Today Online, by the International Reading Association
