  • Description

    When Wolf finds a fact-filled book in the library, he thinks he will at last outsmart his clever friend, Dog.

    The two friends spar as they learn all about mummies and skeletons; robots, knights, and pirates; dinosaurs and dragons; rockets and the moon. As always with Wolf and Dog, there is just as much to learn about getting along together; about friends and enemies, food and fleas.

    1. School Library Journal

      Some topics are dished up with a slice of dark humor, but the entire book exudes a quirky charm. Spot and full-page images add to the volume’s zany presentation and make it a great choice for reluctant readers.

    2. The Alligator’s Mouth (UK)

      New Zealand based publisher Gecko Press always seem good at finding brilliant oddities, and for me there’s no better example than What Dog Knows. This is a wonderful, quirky book that mixes serious facts with hilarious conversation. It would really come into its own as a read-together, and I’d encourage any family to give it a go. You will have so much fun. Just be careful with those cardboard swords and don’t get any funny ideas about mummifying.

    3. Kids’ Book Buzz (US)

      If you like facts mixed with fiction as well as activities and you are able to cope with Wolf’s behavior, this book is for you.

    4. Reviews Coming at YA (US)

      Spinning off of Wolf and Dog, these two furry friends explore scientific topics in an array of illustrations, activities, information, and quizzes. Exploring Mummies and Skeletons, Robots, Knights, and Pirates, Dinosaurs and Dragons, and Rockets and the Moon, this book is packed full of information for young readers from a variety of popular topics (honestly, there are facts many adults may not know). Educational and quirky, this book works well as an illustrated text and an interactive story.

    5. Sarah Librarian (NZ)

      What Dog Knows is a beautiful blend of genres; delicately drawn characters with deep personalities weaving with compelling non-fiction. Throughout each subject there is a peppering of quick quizzes, ideas for creative projects (marshmallow robots, how to make dried apples) and fulsome facts can be found which will be enjoyed by readers and listeners alike beyond the recommended ages of 6-9. Gecko Press has delivered another sumptuous treasure that is as magical to read as it is to hold.

    6. Kirkus Reviews (US)

      A refreshingly unconventional mix of science and storytelling, of physical work and brain work.

      I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.

      When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Many thanks!

      This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
