Stanley's Party may have come to an end ... but our favourite party animal's back and ready to roll! Stanley knows he's not supposed to leave the yard, but he's dog-tired of it. So when he discovers a way out ... he's gone! A few escapes later, five dogs are on the lam. And with Stanley in the lead, they're off to have the kind of fun you can't find in a yard -- chasing tomcats, sampling tasty garbage and soaking fire hydrants. Then, late at night, atop the steepest hill in town, they come upon a mysterious wheeled ... thing. And before you can say "Hot dog!" Stanley's off on the ride of a lifetime! Ages 3-7

Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. Tired of the same old yard and the same old routine, Stanley, the good-time hound who starred in Stanley's Party (2003), longs for something new. Then he discovers a weensy hole near the fence, and he quickly digs himself to the freedom of the open street. After liberating his pals from their respective yards, Stanley and his pack of overjoyed mutts experience the kind of fun you can't find in a yard : peeing on fancy cars, chasing cats, savoring garbage. The biggest thrills come after the group finds a collection of wheeled delights--a skateboard, a tricycle, a shopping cart--but the fun comes to a crashing halt when the police get involved, convincing Stanley that maybe the backyard isn't so bad after all. Slavin's whimsical, detailed, textured acrylics capture the exuberant action and humor and create charming canine characters--from wee but tough Nutsy the Chihuahua to bloated bulldog Gassy Jack. Try this well-paced, energetic story with restless young listeners who, like Stanley, feel a bit penned in. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2006 Booklist"
