**Starred review from Kirkus for TWO DOGS ON A TRIKE

“Careening canine countdowns have never been so much fun! Snyder’s spare, snappy rhymes give Rosenthal all the fuel needed to hilariously execute eye-popping images of raucous canine chaos. From a guitar-playing dachshund in a cone of shame to a boat-driving pug, this tongue-lolling wild bunch can really get it on. This fur-raising one-to-10-and-back-again counting book perfectly captures the rollicking, manic joy of dogs off the leash.” –Kirkus, starred review
