What Kind of Book is A Dog Named Doug

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.5 / 7.0

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.
