I set off one morning in my little red canoe.
My dog wagged his tail.
Can I come, too?"
"You bet," I said.
"A trip for two - just me and you."
When a girl and her dog set out on a canoe trip together, they're expecting a quiet afternoon for two. Then a beaver decides to join them, even when the girl protests that "It's a one-dog canoe." And when a loon, and a wolf, and a bear, and a moose all ask for a ride, it's almost too much. But they all manage to fit in this one-dog canoe - until a frog comes along. . . ."
