In Go, Dog. Go! P.D. Eastman's classic children's book comes to life at the Big Top! Yellow Dog, Blue Dog, Red Dog, and dogs of all colors, shapes, and sizes live in a magical world where dogs are king. See them work, play, eat, sing, dance, play musical instruments, swim, skate, ride bikes, drive cars, and go for a boat ride. They do it all! The snorkel. They howl at the moon. They ride a Ferris wheel. They celebrate their world with a big party in a tree. It's like a pop-up book that comes to life – and never stops!
