This is a cute story with colorful, glossy, woodcut illustrations, and a great mix of big bold colors and detailed patterns. Thats only the illustrations. the book itself is very entertaining also. The dog is out at play and gets hurt and must rush to the vet, while their she gets checked for everything and uses her imagination when told to think of a happy place. This is a great story to help introduce animals and having to go to the vet. it is a great read for pre-school-2nd grade.
