Description

Our favorite odd-couple friends explore the wilds of their house after dark in book two of the Buddy and Earl series.

Buddy is just settling in for the night when Earl announces that he’s going on a trip.

Where will Earl go? Wherever the road leads him, of course!

Before Buddy knows it, he and Earl are off on another grand adventure. While exploring the wilds of the kitchen, they see wondrous sights, make delicious discoveries and even encounter a couple of unusual monsters.

This second book in the best-selling Buddy and Earl series reunites the dog who likes to play by the rules and the hedgehog who knows no limits.

Editorial Reviews

Life is good for Buddy and Earl in this aerobic exercise of the imagination.

Kirkus Reviews

A neat story with enough hilarious high jinks to make young readers giggle out loud and look forward to more Buddy and Earl adventures.

School Library Journal

The comic tension between the real and the imagined, between Buddy’s sweet naiveté and Earl’s cleverness, and between the human and animal universes is just as evident here as in the first book.
