What's Roy Digs Dirt About

Publisher Summary

Woof! Meet Roy, an adorable white dog who is wild about digging, digging, digging in the dirt!David Shannon’s picture books are loved for their endearing characters and laugh-aloud humor, and Roy’s charming naughtiness will remind readers of what they love about Shannon’s No, David!, a bestselling Caldecott Honor Book about a boy with a nose for trouble. Although it’s a smelly task for those who have to constantly bathe him, Roy’s happiness centers on his very favorite thing-dirt-and from sunrise to sunset, he burrows in it, rolls in it, and digs up buried treasures. There’s terror in every terrier, and when Roy runs into the house after being sprayed by a skunk, he faces the dreaded bathtub. Readers will see themselves in Roy’s childlike delight each time he makes the biggest mess ever.
