Beginning readers will love this I Can Read adventure starring a doggy construction crew! The text and art have been gently adapted from James Horvath's picture book of the same title.
Top dog Duke and his busy crew of construction worker dogs have a big day ahead of them as they race to repair a road. With miles of new road to lay, the crew gets to work using equipment like bulldozers, steamrollers, and paving trucks. But what happens when a rocky hill blocks the way? Time to bring in the demolition crew!
Work, Dogs, Work is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it's perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
About James HorvathJames Horvath is the author-illustrator of two more picture books starring Duke and his construction crew: Build, Dogs, Build and Dig, Dogs, Dig, which the New York Times said "hops along with the bouncy effervescence of P. D. Eastman's Go, Dogs, Go!" He has worked as a designer and illustrator for more than fifteen years. In 2002, he established Jamestoons Studios (with a workforce of one) so he could focus more on his illustration. When not scratching and scribbling at his drawing table, he plays with his two young sons and wife, bangs around on the banjo, surfs, and generally has a lot of fun. A lifelong devoted cartoon fan, James Horvath lives with his family on California's central coast.
