Lois Ehlert skillfully captures both the personality and appearance of a host of dogs in a playful, visually dynamic picture book. Ehlert uses color, texture, and line to marvelous effect, creating a parade of pooches and their owners at a farmer market and dog park. Her vibrant hues and varied edges pop against solid green pages. The dogs exchange comments in a sparse, rhyming text, but the dialogue is secondary to the arresting display of canine companions, each of which appears in a brief biographical portrait at the book’s end. (Ages 3–6)
