Do you like my hat?

Yes, we do! Those fan-favorite dogs are back in one of the most inventive adaptations in SCT history. The madcap party never stops when these zany canines—big and small—leap off the page to bring P.D. Eastman’s famous book to life. The dogs’ high-spirited singing, zooming cars, construction zone chaos, and up-all-night antics will have the whole family in stitches. Oh, did we mention the roller-skating? Have fun keeping up with Red, Blue, Yellow, and Green Dog.
