ack Russell Terriers Zeb and ZeeZee dictate this first tale of a new series in their own
language (there's a glossary to 7
words in the back) to their favorite human,
. This canine point of view provides a wonderful perspective on the doggy day.
eeZee is in the habit of teasing young Zeb about his short legs (she calls him '
') and showing off her longer ones. Though Zeb laughs at ZeeZee's comments, they hurt his feelings. One day he spots a baby horse through the chain link fence at the edge of the yard, and admires the colt's long legs. He sneaks under the fence, crosses the road and makes a new friend whom he calls Lightning. She takes him for quite a ride!
uperb illustrations pull these two delightful terriers into the reader's heart, while the story teaches about the need for consideration of a friend's feelings and point of view. It ends with '
Humans at the front door!
', perhaps the beginning of Zeb and ZeeZee's second adventure.
