Move Over, Rover!

Written by Karen Beaumont and illustrated by Jane Dyer (Harcourt)

The book cover of "Move Over, Rover!" by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by Jane Dyer features Rover, peering outside of his doghouse while a little mouse peers in at him. The Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book Award Seal has been affixed at the left edge below the title.


Beaumont's patterned cumulative text is expanded by Dyer's watercolors containing context clues to tell the story of creatures from Squirrel to Skunk seeking shelter by squeezing into Rover's doghouse.
