Vibrant, collage-like illustrations paired with simple rhyming text show off the comically lovable proportions of the dachshund with its short legs and long bodies, spirited nature, and cheerful temperament. Hot Dog, Cold Dog reveals an adorable array of wiener dog looks, showing kids the fun times these little pups have as they visit the beach, cavort in the snow, dig in the garden, jump to the ceiling, and even ride a skateboard—all the while giving a lesson in opposites.

From award-winning author/illustrator Frann Preston-Gannon comes this celebration of dachshunds in all their variety—perfect for dog-lovers of every age!
