Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Dugger! Dugger! Digger! What's that noise? It's the booming sound of big construction vehicles, and Little Dalmatian is determined to find out what they are building.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 January #1
    A puppy awakens one morning to the sweet sounds of big machinery: the "DUGGER DUGGER DIGGER" of a digger truck driven by a dalmatian, the "BRMMM BRMMM WHEEE" of a crane operated by a camel, the "DUMP SPLAT CRASH" of a duck in a dump truck, and so on. The little dog bounds out of bed and leaps about the construction site from one truck to the next. On the last page, the digital artwork reveals what the trucks have been building: a tree house for the puppy. Logically, this doesn't work so well, since the only workers in sight are those seated in their trucks and running the machinery. Who nailed the ladderlike slats to the tree, constructed the elaborate, gabled house, and added the tire swing and the banana-shaped yellow slide? But truck fans charmed by the puppy's idyllic adventure will probably enjoy the final scene as much as the truck sounds they've been imitating along the way. A cheerful picture book for kids whose heroes wear hard hats. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
