A variety of dogs are cleverly constructed entirely from fruits and vegetables. A dachshundlike pup is fashioned from bananas, and poodlelike pooches with curly locks are created out of cauliflower or broccoli. Simple cuts have been made to form legs and ears, and small pieces of other fruits and vegetables have been attached for eyes and other small body parts. Each canine appears on a bright, solid-colored background and is labeled with a simple phrase. The idiomatic expressions and other descriptors show the many ways the words “dog” and “puppy” have been incorporated into the English language. “Dog tired,” “sick as a dog,” “top dog,” and “puppy love” are just a few examples. The endpapers show all of the creatures pictured in the book, and the back cover lists the ingredients used.
