If you have ever had a pet, then you probably have had a flea! This book is about a flea in a scruffy dog’s hair. It is written in cute rhyme and will put a smile on any child’s face. “Pap-Pat went the man, saying; now I see. A bite from a flea made you land on me!” Find out what happens when the flea, which landed on the dog, then the man, lands on next. The illustrations are colorful and fun that complement the story very nicely. As librarians request, the font in children’s books should be very legible and not to fancy or curvy. Children need to be able to read books easily.
