About the Author
David LaRochelle is the author of many books for young readers, including How to Apologize and the Geisel Award winner See the Cat and its sequels, all illustrated by Mike Wohnoukta, and Isle of You, illustrated by Jaime Kim. David LaRochelle lives in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.

Mike Wohnoutka has illustrated more than thirty books for young readers, including How to Apologize and the See the Cat series, written by David LaRochelle. He is also the author and illustrator of Ups and Downs: A Book of Emotions and other picture books. Mike Wohnoutka lives with his family in Minneapolis.
From the creators of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning See the Cat (2020), here's another genuinely funny book. LaRochelle is very effective at creating comical situations, and his text reads aloud beautifully. In Wohnoutka's expressive gouache illustrations, which include speech balloons, Rex's puppy-dog eyes and body language make the story's outcome seem inevitable, but surely kids wouldn't have it end any other way. Well attuned to its audience of prereaders and beginning readers, this book is zany, fun, and downright irresistible.
--Booklist (starred review)

In this peppy read, creative partners LaRochelle and Wohnoutka (See the Cat: Stories About a Dog) introduce "Go and Get"--an "eye spy"-like alphabet game that keeps three players on their toes. . . . The unflagging energy and creative play on offer should soon prompt readers to transfer the game from picture book to real life.
