Buddy and Earl are safely tucked in for the night; Buddy on his blanket and Earl in his cage. But just as Buddy settles in for a nice, long sleep, Earl says it’s time to say “Bon voyage.”

Soon these mismatched pals are at it again, exploring the wilds of the kitchen and defending a lovely lady hedgehog — who may or may not be Mom’s hairbrush — from imminent danger. When they’ve finally vanquished the greatest monster of all — the vacuum cleaner — it’s time for some well-earned shut-eye.

This second book in the Buddy and Earl series reunites this odd and loveable animal couple: a dog who likes to play by the rules and a hedgehog who knows no limits.”

Reviewed by Meredith Cleversey. CM: Canadian Review of Materials, January, 2016 Highly Recommended ” Maureen Fergus and Carey Sookocheff’s second “Buddy and Earl” story is a marvellous successor to the first book in the series. Buddy and Earl Go Exploring is a charming story of imagination and adventure shared between two friends who see the world very differently. Readers will find Earl’s confident courage and Buddy’s uncertain yet enthusiastic companionship entertaining and sweet.”

Kirkus Starred Review“Roll, fetch, bite. Life is good for Buddy and Earl in this aerobic exercise of the imagination. “
