School Library Journal - 06/01/2019 PreS-Gr 1—The engaging pups introduced in See Me Run and See Me Dig return to chase an errant tennis ball across land and sea. The adventure beings simply with a hand holding a ball. When the ball is thrown, the pack chases it down the hill and through the lake. As various other animals confiscate the ball, the dogs— in hot pursuit —utilize a hot air balloon, a boat, and a car. The rumpus ends when the ball is swallowed by a lion. Another adventure seems imminent, however, as the dogs gaze expectantly at the same anonymous hand now holding a stick. The text is large font, incorporates simple sentence structure and repeated word use. Combined with the pictures, there is a definite and satisfying story line. Beginning readers will enjoy the ever-increasing absurdity in the sequence of events. Watercolor and ink outline, cartoon illustrations are clean and straightforward, but fall far short of awe-inspiring. VERDICT Beginning readers and fans of Meisel will enjoy this new installment.–Richelle Rose, Kenton County Public Library, KY - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
