This volume: In Dogs, we follow an adorable Cocker Jack named Rudy on a exciting trip to the dog park.

Which is awesome!- --Popular Science-The artwork and text are attractive and interesting, and readers will learn how dinosaur bones became fossils and how their remains were eventually discovered.
