We all know the story of the house that Jack built, or do we? Jack's House is the real story, you see. Jack (a human) takes credit for the actual building of the house. But it is our hero Max (a hardworking dog) and his friends who are as busy as a mouse! But not yet, are you done! The amazingly bright illustrations add to the fun. Each one helps the delightful story move! Each one holds a surprise. Kids (and adults) who love construction, vehicles, tools, dogs and funny stories will giggle and wiggle with glee at the antics of our courageous friend.~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Lyrical text will have you and your child signing along as you find out what happens next, then repeat as you go back "down" the tree. Perfect any time story for the very young to young at heart! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
