“Kids won’t be able to get enough of this goofy dog who’s smart enough to know on which side his biscuit is buttered.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

Being a farm dog is a tough job. But luckily, Ragweed’s handbook will tell you everything you need to know. Step one: don’t wake the farmer! That’s the rooster’s job. Of course, if you do wake the farmer, you might just get a biscuit. . . . Full of hilarious dog logic, this tongue-in-cheek primer on how to be a good farm dog (and how ignoring the rules may result in a biscuit) is a guaranteed treat.

Hilarious and slightly irreverent, young readers will want to read this picture book again and again.
