We take the dogs down the wiggly track, The wiggly track, the wiggly track. One dog's white and the other dog's black On a summery Saturday morning.In Margaret Mahy's lively read-aloud romp, lots of things don't go quite as planned on one summery Saturday morning. But the children, dogs, cat, and even the geese seem to enjoy themselves, as will any adult and child who share this lighthearted picture book, cheerfully illustrated with Selina Young's boisterous illustrations.
