What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From a heavyweight author and illustrator duo comes a delicious tongue twister of a picture book that features a little round greyhound and a little round groundhog. With very spare, incredibly lively language, this is an entertaining read-aloud, with two amazing—and oh-so-adorable—characters at its heart. When a greyhound meets a groundhog, wordplay 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, groundhog!) The pace picks up (Around and around and astound and astound!), until they ultimately wear themselves out.

The Book Snob Mom's Rating

In the same vein as Orange Pear Apple Bear, this book uses just a few words (although slightly more than 4!) arranged differently to create different scenarios described in tongue tripping phrases and illustrated with great movement! It's a cute, short, fun little book that's decidedly silly!
