~I received A Greyhound, a Groundhog for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
When a greyhound meets a groundhog, wordplay and crazy antics ensue. The two animals, much like kids, work themselves into a frenzy as they whirl around and around one another. (Around, round hound. Around, groundhog!) The pace picks up (Around and around and astound and astound!), until they ultimately wear themselves out.

These two animals are fast friends. My 5 year old enjoys this book and it is especially great for toddlers and preschoolers even younger as it is a simple story yet the wordplay is fun and enjoyable.
