A Greyhound, A Groundhog

A Greyhound, A Groundhog

by Emily Jenkins

When a greyhound meets a groundhog, word play–and crazy antics–ensue. The two animals, much like kids, work themselves into a frenzy as they whirl around and around one another (Around, round hound. Around, greyhound). The pace picks up (Around and around and astound and astound), until they ultimately wear themselves out. With very spare, incredibly lively language, this is an entertaining read-aloud, with two amazing (and oh-so adorable) characters at its heart.
