The Night I Followed The Dog by Nina Laden

This book is a little older (1994) but has become a favorite of the 4 year old since we got it at the library!  One morning a boy decides to open the door just a little earlier to let the dog in, and discovers his dog jumping out of a limo wearing a tux.  The boy decides to follow his dog that night and finds a whole new world.  The doghouse he helped build has a living room, bathroom and huge closet.  He follows his dog to a part of town he has never seen before.  A place where dogs hang out without having to follow the orders of masters.

"See all the sofas?  We can sit on the sofas here.  We can get treats without having to lie down, roll over, or play dead."

The text is written large and some of the words actually looks like the word being described.  For example, the word "leashes" looks like a leash with the letters changed.   We are really enjoying this book.  Great fun!
