After the ball game two boys walk home, a roly-poly pup following at their heels. "Where does your dog sleep?" asks the first boy.
"Does he sleep in the bathtub?"
"No, my dog doesn't sleep in the bathtub," comes the reply.
"On a bookshelf? In a tree? In the refrigerator?"
Ever sillier suggestions are presented but none of the guesses are correct. The final page reveals the unexpected answer.
The back-and-forth repeating dialogue is a good set-up for success for the beginning reader. Val Lawton's crisp pen and watercolour illustrations offer clear picture clues for new vocabulary. Large text size and plenty of white space focus the reader's attention and help move the story along.
A quick read-aloud choice that offers opportunity for listener responses. The dialogue pattern lends itself to story modeling.
