Sometimes – the more the merrier

I set off one morning in my little red canoe.
My dog wagged his tail.
“Can I come, too?”
“You bet,” I said.
“A trip for two – just me and you.”

But when “with a slap and a swim” Beaver scrambles in, and then “with a ‘woo-hooo!’ – flap!” Loon lands in the young canoeist’s lap, it’s clear that this will be no ordinary canoe trip.

A bouncy rhyming text and exuberant pictures full of funny, escalating antics will have young readers laughing out loud – for just when it seems the canoe can’t hold anyone else, frog jumps in!

Praise for One-Dog Canoe

"Rhyming text sets a buoyant tone, as do debut artist Hoyt's lively illustrations...Readers will happily embark on this animated excursion." -- Publishers Weekly

"A girl sets out on a canoe ride and is joined by her dog, then a variety of animal passengers...Hoyt, in his children's book debut, plays with perspective...[while] Casanova's rhyming text employs a familiar cumulative twist as each animal requests a ride." -- Kirkus Reviews
