As in the previous volumes, construction vocabulary and geological terms are emphasized in the rhyming text...Bold, computer-generated illustrations are filled with trucks, machinery, dogs in motion...Big trucks, jovial dogs and snappy rhyming text serve again as the building blocks of another successful entry in this solidly built series.

Synopsis

Top dog Duke and his busy crew have a big day of construction fun ahead of them as they race to repair a road. With miles of new road to lay, our favorite doggy construction team gets to work using equipment like bulldozers, steamrollers, and paving trucks. But what happens when a big hill blocks the way? Time to bring in the demolition crew!

Through his bouncy verse and bold artwork, author-illustrator James Horvath brings the excitement of a bustling construction scene to life. This is a dynamite companion to Dig, Dogs, Dig and Build, Dogs, Build.
