In this exuberant new picture book, Lois Ehlert takes us on a trip to the farmers market with a group of friendly, furry, and (mostly) well-behaved pups. And when the shopping's done, the gang heads to the dog park for some serious playing. Readers will be wowed by the gorgeous collage illustrations, subtle counting elements, jaunty text, and--best of all--dogs galore! Includes a spread that features pictures, names, and traits of all the dogs, so children can go back and follow their favorites throughout the story.

LOIS EHLERT has created many celebrated picture books inspired by the world around her. She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.From Booklist:
Paper cutouts conjure up a cheerful dog-centered world in Ehlert's latest book. She fashions a straightforward plot--dogs go to a farmer's market with their owners in tow, then roam free at a dog park. The text is written simply, and beginning readers may enjoy giving it a try. It's all dog talk from the start: "Ha Woo. / How are you? / We are cool / We never drool. / We're graduates of the Bow Wow School." The main attractions are the sweet figures--canine and human--that move through the solid blocks of green in Ehlert's urban landscapes. The dogs celebrate the ordinary pleasures of companionship and movement, especially in the last pages, where they do backflips and somersaults above and around each other. And in their many colors and shapes, the dogs show what clever use can be made of paper, paint, buttons, and fabric. An author's note lets readers in on where she got the materials for this book and how she put them together "like a quilt." Abby Nolan
