Publisher Summary

Meet Doug. Doug is a dog that loves to dig. But when Doug digs he doesn’t just dig holes in the backyard. He digs…ditches the size of tractors! He digs…tunnels through gold mines! He even digs his way into…the White House! But not even the Secret Service can stop this digging doggy, because when Doug digs, oh boy, does Doug DIG!

Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

The typography is my favorite part of this book—the way the illustrator uses the tunnels to create the words is fantastic and fun! There’s no great moral or lesson to this story (mostly just a dog being a little naughty and digging) but it’s humorous and the illustrations really make it.
