"A group of animals are forced to come together after a greedy dog swallows up the entire valley of creatures. Deickmann's colorful and detailed drawings of the natural world are just beautiful, while telling an important story of community and togetherness." —Rachel

— From The Most Brilliant Books of 2018


Discover the importance of friendship and community in this stunning picture book by the creator of Leaf.

Down in the valley, all the animals live in peace among their own kind, happy but not quite united until the day the enormous dog appeared. The animals run as fast as they can, but the big dog is so terrible and so greedy that he swallows them all one by one! With their whole world in darkness, they have no choice but to band together to rebuild their lives, and in the process they discover value in each other. The Dog That Ate the World is the second picture book by Sandra Dieckmann, whose debut Leaf, was a Kirkus Reviews Best Picture Book of 2017.
