Summary
As the old saying goes, "Give a dog a ball, and he'll beg to play for days. But give a dog a treat, and he'll never stop begging."

In this companion to Mary Sullivan's Geisel Award-winning Ball , there's a new dog in town and he is focused on finding a treat, no matter the cost. But endless tricks and futile searching (you can't eat Grandma's dentures!) can be pretty exhausting. Just when he's about to give up hope . . . what's this? TREAT!

In this hilarious and heartwarming graphic novel/ picture book hybrid, readers will rejoice and laugh as they recognize the silly, but always determined, behavior of man's best friend.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A rotund, brown-spotted pup has one thing on her mind: treats. Even on the book's cover, she practically vibrates with anticipation. Geisel Honor winner (Ball, 2013) Sullivan uses but one word, treat, in this book, but its various inflections and changing context result in a hilarious, and surprisingly epic, tale. Dog is snoozing away, dreaming of ice cream, when a delicious aroma reaches her nostrils: Treat? Treat! Off she zips to the kitchen, where a snacking toddler refuses to share her food. Perhaps the other family members will throw her a bone. Or not. The canine flops down for a nap of disappointment, which sends her to a riotous, treat-filled dreamland. A cupcake planet! A swimming pool filled with hot dogs! Things are great until Dog's hungry brain turns the tables, with alarming results. Sullivan's digitally colored pencil illustrations are packed with imagination, energy, and humor, and the dog's many emotions are captured particularly well. Kids will eat up this over-the-top ode to snacks.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ball's Geisel Award-winning Ball got inside the mind of a ball-obsessed dog, and this equally wonderful companion book introduces a roly-poly pooch who rides a roller-coaster of emotions as he prowls, scowls, and begs his way around the house in search of something tasty. "Treat. Treat! Treat? Treat!!" he telepathically beseeches the family toddler who's munching on cereal, throwing in some balletic moves in hopes of impressing her. But the situation is nearly hopeless: the toddler is interested only in stuffing her own face, grandma and grandpa aren't any help, the older sister is oblivious, and did the older brother really think a crayon drawing was what the dog was after? Exhausted and disgusted, the dog falls asleep on top of the laundry and dreams of treats-dreams that soon turn to nightmares. Sullivan has created quite a treat herself: a canine hero with a one-track mind and an endlessly expressive one-word vocabulary (aided by comically frenetic typography) whose approach to thwarted desire is, as any child will recognize, all too human.
