Don't get me wrong -- I cut my eye-teeth on Bartholomew Cubbins and his hats and his oobleck. Loved 'em.
But our family has Go Dogs Go memorized, because we read it so many times twenty years ago!! And, excuse me, but it captures the essence of some very complex prepositions, colors and social interactions, the courage to say "I do not like that hat!", and the notion of having a party in a tree, all of which are beyond the pale of normal suburban thinking. It is not the dogs who drive SUVs in suburbia, but their sons.
