One-Dog Canoe - Casanova

This little girl just wants to go for a paddle down the river in her canoe with only her dog. She keeps saying over and over that it is a One-Dog Canoe...problem is, animals from all over the water's edge keep inviting themselves on board. Finally, they all get tipped into the river and have a good swim and agree with her that truly she does have a One-Dog Canoe. The illustrations are really fun and the rythm of the book is great too.
Another version of this book (reviewed here) is called Red Fox and his Canoe by Benchley and is a fun twist to this story as well.
