Abstract:
"He came over the pastures like a mean thunderstorm... fast as lightning was the dirty dog. All of the animals of the valley lived in peace and harmony until the big greedy dog appeared. He was so greedy that he gobbled up everything he could see! Happily for our animal friends, there was plenty of room for them all to live and play in the dog's big bad belly. Perhaps it's not so great to be the biggest and baddest animal in the valley after all..."--Provided by publisher.

Summary

Discover the importance of friendship and community in this stunning picture book by the creator of Leaf.

Down in the valley, all the animals live in peace among their own kind, happy but not quite united until the day the enormous dog appeared. The animals run as fast as they can, but the big dog is so terrible and so greedy that he swallows them all one by one! With their whole world in darkness, they have no choice but to band together to rebuild their lives, and in the process they discover value in each other. The Dog That Ate the World is the second picture book by Sandra Dieckmann, whose debut Leaf, was a Kirkus Reviews Best Picture Book of 2017.
