Children’s Books: GERALD MCGILLIGOG’S DOG (Funny, Whimsical, Rhyming Bedtime Story/Picture Book, for Beginner Readers About Choosing to be Happy, Ages 2-8) (Happy Children’s Series Book 9)
When the desires of a dog and a frog coincide, they decide to trade places. Fortunately for them, the dog’s owner, Gerald McGilligog, never wears his glasses. The family of McGilligogs is also remiss about wearing their glasses, which in turn affects their eyesight and ability to distinguish between the frog and dog. Thus the frog, posing as a dog, finds a new home. All the characters, including the green one, find happiness in this new arrangement.
The whimsical art of Sally Huss bounces along with rhyming, tongue-twisting words as the story unfolds.
Children who love the rhyming, nonsensical books of Dr. Seuss will love this book. And those who are fans of the books by Mo Willems, the Berenstains, Sandra Boynton, Felicia Bond, Laura Numeroff, and P.D. Eastman will also love GERALD MCGILLIGOG’S DOG. Age range: 2-8.
“Once among the family of McGilligogs, a-gogs, with moms and dads and lads and lasses,
None of them wearing glasses,
The frog was given a juicy bone.
He smiled and said, ‘I’ve found my home.
This is the life for me.
I’m no longer in a bog a bog
Sitting on a log, a log.’
He decided he’d be a dog, a dog
And was as happy as could be.”
