Have you heard the old story about The House that Jack Built? Most people assume Jack built the house. But one tired pooch disagrees.
Jack’s hard-working, big-truck-driving, hammer-pounding pooch, Max, wants you to know his side of the story in this exciting tell-all tale.
“This book was built for those youngsters with a jones for trucks and other big wheels, and it delivers in spades.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“A wonderful twist on an age-old rhyme. . . . The vehicles that drive up to the site delivering materials and excavating are rugged and tough, appealing to the construction enthusiasts, but the soaring house is the centerpiece of the story, and Max’s care in building it is obvious. This beguiling book will be a hit . . . ”

When an obnoxious cow elbows her way on board a crowded trolley, the hard-working driver loses count and his passengers go flying, even the pigs! What’s happening to the passengers? Will they ever get where they’re going?
“Readers will cheer as the ill-mannered bovine gets her comeuppance, and Meisel’s energetic and humorous acrylic illustrations will keep them in stitches as they practice counting by twos.” – School Library Journal
“Meisel’s colorful illustrations fit this tale perfectly, with the sweet facial expressions of the cow lending surprise to her rude behavior. Not only will readers learn to count by twos, they will also learn the words used to describe pairs: duet, couple, twosome, partners . . . in this funny story.” – Kirkus Reviews
