About this item

The winning team of director Spike Lee and his wife, producer Tonya Lewis Lee, has created an adorable, wry picture book featuring the hilarious antics of a pair of African American toddlers and their infectiously energetic, adventurous little puppy. Intent on some freedom, the puppy explodes out the yard and heads straight for a mud puddle, much to the dismay of the little children. A companion to PLEASE, BABY, PLEASE, this delightful book features Coretta Scott King Award winner Kadir Nelson's wonderfully detailed, exuberant paintings, often from the endearing level of the puppy.
Away from the gate,

puppy puppy, please, puppy.

Oh wait, puppy, wait,

please, please, please,


In page after page of tail-wagging fun, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Spike Lee and his wife, Beacon Award-winning producer Tonya Lewis Lee, take a close-up look at what happens when a couple of high-energy toddlers meet their match in an adventurous pup who has no plans of letting up.

Irresistible illustrations by Coretta Scott King Award winner Kadir Nelson unleash countless memorable moments of toddlerhood, and puppyhood, which families with four-legged friends will enjoy over and over again.
