Praise for Digging for Dinos:"This sequel is far from a dinosnore; here's to joining these two pals on all their future adventures." -- Kirkus"[Haggis and Tank] are back for another exciting, imaginative playtime adventure...The narrative's simply constructed sentences describe events, while the colorful comic panels, lively dialogue in word balloons, and amusing commentary and wordplay further extend the story and add fun detail. Once again, the delightful pooch duo shines in this entertaining, fast-paced, and fun read." -- BooklistPraise for Haggis and Tank #1: All Paws on Deck:"Young...engag[es] her heroes in enticing banter and funny misunderstandings involving puns and homophones. It's especially gratifying to see that the big, tough, strong dog character is a female. Burks' plentiful, full-color art is consistently engaging...Kids dipping a toe into the waters of early chapter books will find themselves challenged by the text while simultaneously enticed by the alluring art. These salty sea dogs put the bite back in buccaneering." -- Kirkus"Two canine pals star in this entertaining, comics-style chapter book series for early readers...The spare, easy-to-read main text describes the events, and the stylized, full-color cartoon illustrations, complete with amusing speech-balloon conversations and asides, expand the story. Tank and Haggis have many homophone-related miscommunications, a concept...which both helps aid reading comprehension and boosts the funny factor...the animated, distinctly drawn characters...will have kids seeking their future adventures." -- Booklist"There's more than a little Abbott and Costello in the goofy, misunderstanding-laden relationship between two dogs in this first book...Young...crams their dialogue with "Who's on first?"-style homophones...Burks...keeps the book's six chapters zipping along in lively full-bleed images and panel sequences. The dogs' odd-couple antics, loads of goofy humor, and an appealing comics/early reader format make for an all-around entertaining read." -- Publishers Weekly
