Safe and Sound are two small dogs with big ideas: they want to see the world. But the world is not what they expect. First of all, who knew that planes fly so high? that the English Channel includes waves? that in Australia it is autumn when everyone knows it should be spring?

Poor little Safe and Sound record their trials in journals, and it is those journals that form Barbara Nichol’s hilarious long poem.

And so was born their manuscript, and so was born their book,
And if you’d like to read it I will tell you where to look.
You’ll find it in the bookstore under Canine stories, true.
In the section labeled “Biting Off Much More than You Can Chew.”

The book's reproving narrator has ostensibly discovered the dogs' journals of their round-the-world travels and, like a 19th-century novelist, tells their tale as he/she moralistically addresses the dogs directly: "Oh, Safe and Sound, dear little friends,/ We gather from your books/ You're findin...
