Dr. Xargle's book of Earth Hounds

Willis, Jeanne; Ross, Tony

In this successor to "Dr Xargle's Book of Earthlets", which was shortlisted for the Children's Book of the Year Award, the doctor and his aliens prepare to take another trip to Earth to study man's best friend, the Earth hound. "Earth Hounds have fangs at the front and a waggler at the back. To find out which is which, hold a sausage at both ends." Thus Dr Xargle, our friendly alien teacher, begins to teach his class all about man's best friend. This is an hysterically funny book, a guaranteed hit with dog-lovers everywhere, particularly dog-owners, who will vouch for the fact that Earth Hounds can, indeed, "jump as high as a roast beef"!
