Fetch by Jorey Hurley -- ADVISABLE

Hurley, Jorey Fetch. PICTURE BOOK. Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2015.  $17.99. Content: G.

In this simple tale, an enthusiastic dog chases a ball along the beach and into the ocean, encountering a variety of creatures along the way. The use of illustrations and basic words to tell the story is reminiscent of such Leslie Patricelli books as Higher! Higher! and Faster! Faster! This nearly-wordless book will likely appeal to dog lovers and to young readers who rely heavily on picture clues to figure out words.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
