If you Turnip your nose at these books, you'll be in The Doghouse

Pig and Mouse have a surprise for Cow's birthday! They are baking the best birthday cake ever!  Duck wants to help, but who wants TURNIPS for their birthday? Who indeed? A Birthday for Cow answers that question, while its companion story The Doghouse raises new questions. Who or what is in the doghouse? Why is it that no one who goes in comes out? And what's this about having Duck for dinner?

Writer/illustrator Jan Thomas's skill with a few simple lines remind me of the Pigeon books by Mo Willems, and wild-eyed duck would probably LOVE to drive a bus (but don't let him!).
