There's no place like home. I loved the illustrations in this children's book and the book, itself felt like a folk tale as the dog appears in a happy, little valley and starts to consume everything around him. The valley was content and merry without the dog but when the dog shows up, he is a greedy guy and takes whatever he wants, which is everything. Therefore, he eats and eats and gets bigger and bigger! Now, the villagers could get angry about the situation but they don't. That's the big surprise about this story, the villagers stick together, work together and try to make the best of the situation. I thought this was a cute story, with a good lesson behind it. The illustrations were fantastic and I liked the thicker pages.
