  • "spare text and fun wordplay invites a closer look at the clever illustrations that are full of action." - seira wilson, amazon editor
  • "but what emily jenkins and chris appelhans’ lyrical collaboration is really about is the intoxicating thrill of friendship, and boundless joy of play..." –the new york times
  • from a heavyweight author and illustrator duo comes a delicious tongue twister of a picture book that features a little round greyhound and a little round groundhog
  • with very spare, incredibly lively language, this is an entertaining read-aloud, with two amazing—and oh-so-adorable—characters at its heart
  • when a greyhound meets a groundhog, wordplay and crazy antics ensue. the two animals, much like kids, work themselves into a frenzy as they whirl around and around one another. (around, round hound. around, groundhog!) the pace picks up (around and around and astound and astound!), until they ultimately wear themselves out
  • “appelhans makes an auspicious picture book debut with strikingly beautiful watercolor and pencil illustrations. His style, reminiscent of jon klassen’s, incorporates a muted color palette, but with a slightly softer, rounder quality, while also weaving in visual deadpan humor.” —the horn book
