On a gloomy, dripping, rain-boots-required kind of day, Kid is ready to stay inside, warm and dry, and play video games. But to Dog, Kid’s arrival home means only one thing: it’s time for WALKIES!

Outside, rain means puddles to splash in, mud to splock in! Tiny ears perked up, tail a-waggling with joy, Dog bounds through the park, Kid in tow. Playful action sequences, bold facial expressions, and vivid illustrations all drive this wordless tale, transforming a dreary afternoon into a boisterous adventure.

While at first doubtful about the experience, Kid’s attitude brightens, buoyed by Dog’s playful antics and the surprises and wonder to be found outdoors. Before long, thanks to Dog’s positive energy, Kid doesn’t think it’s such a bad day after all. In fact, it might just be the best!

Filled with adorable, exuberant scenes any dog owner knows well, this playful romp is sure to brighten the day of many a young reader, pet owner and non-pet owner alike.

Praise For…

"This soggy and exuberant romp would pair beautifully with another atmospheric, near-wordless canine adventure: Doug Salati’s sweltering and joyous Caldecott winner Hot Dog (2022). A wet and wonderful tale of pet ownership."

"Hand this to children when the rain comes in and the screens come out."

"This wordless picture book captures the good, the bad, and the damp of owning a dog."
