Description
Be careful what dog you scratch, as farmer Quantz finds out in this lighthearted tall tale from Jeanne Steig—you may get something itchy in return. The widow of William Steig and the author of the New York Times Notable Book A Gift from Zeus and the New York Times Best Illustrated Book A Handful of Beans, Jeanne follows the exchanges of fleas for a talkative fellow, that talker for some cheeses, the cheese for a banjo, the banjo for a wig, the wig for a hare, the hare for a bone, and the bone for the dog who no longer had fleas. Britt Spencer imagines this rollicking tale for youngsters up to 9 in expressive watercolor caricatures.

"Peppered with wonderful language, this noodle-head story makes for a lively and fun read-aloud. The mixed-media cartoon spreads, featuring elongated figures in exaggerated poses, perfectly match the comic tone of the tale."—School Library Journal
