On a hot, hot day a good old dog just has to get some relief! Around the steamy country lanes he sniffs and searches until he finds: a chauffeur washing a shiny car, a baker scrubbing some sticky pans, and a florist spraying a pink bouquet. They’re all getting ready for a country wedding and this overheated pup just wants to plunge into the fun—and water!But will the wedding party in their fancy finery welcome this gotta-becool pooch? Zany characters, zingy lines, and high-spirited scenes practically bounce off the pages of this witty and affectionate story by debut author Elise Broach and New York Times Best Illustrated Books Award winner David Catrow.
