Bob's friend Max has a dog. Bob has a rock. Max's dog can do tricks. But so can Bob's rock! Can it do everything the dog does? This funny, minimalist story uses patterns, repetitions, and comparisons to create a satisfying read-aloud experience.


"The controlled vocabulary and repetition make this picture book a good segue for fledgling readers." —Kirkus Reviews
