    Basically a wordless book. This story is told only with the word Dude. The pictures are by Dan Santat and I love his artwork. These surfers have a simple story to tell. It is an effective story. My nephew isn't reading yet and he felt like he could 'read' this book. It might have been ...

    RTC There's not much to say about the words in this book, as there are all of two ("Dude" in its many variations, and one instance of "Splat!"), but it's in Dan Santat's illustrations that readers will come to understand what's going on here, through the facial expressions and surro...

    Duuuude!!! ? that?s all this picture book needed. The illustrations are spot on and don?t require much text. Loved it! ...

    Duuuude! Hilarious book, and a great one to use when teaching tone. ...

    Proof that the way a word is said (or read, in this case) alters its meaning. The single word of text (hint: if you've read the title, you've read the book) effectively demonstrates this concept through the font, punctuation usage, and, Dan Santat's signature illustrations. The eye-pop...

    Dude!!! Dude!!! Duuuuudddeee!!! A totally hilarious and bodacious read. ...

    So much fun! I love reading "one word" stories, and this one is sure to entertain. ...

    Duuuuude! This book got my 6 year old laughing so hard and when we were done he made me read it again, and then he wanted to read it aloud to himself after that. Brilliant illustrations. Dude is a pretty versatile word, dude. 5 stars and Happy Shark Week Dudes! ...

    Maybe the lack of appeal for me is that I don't think I could pull reading this out loud off. Two animal surfers run afoul a shark and resulting adventures occur with just the use of one work and (I admit I was sick of it by the end of the story.) ...

    This simple picture book by Aaron Reynolds, illustrated by Dan Santat is a perfect read for young children. I explain why here on my blog: https://wp.me/p7OIsL-Vd ...

    3.5 for me because I liked it much more upon a second reading. Relying on one word repeated throughout the story but in different typefaces and colors, this almost wordless picture book follows the surfing adventures of a beaver and a platypus. Phrases such as "FAR OUT!" and "GNARLY" a...

    This is one of my new favorite books. After reading it to several groups of kindergartners I can safely say that this is a winning book. Aaron Reynolds and Dan Santat make for a thoroughly marvelous team. While the book only uses one word throughout (Dude!), the way it is used makes fo...

    Dude! rocks, dudes! In this entertaining picture book, two dudes, a platypus and a beaver, go surfing. They meet another dude, a shark. They offer him ice cream. Will they all be dudes together? The answer will provide you with plenty of enjoyment. Dude! tells a story using only...

    In this clever picture book, the text uses one word - dude - throughout the entire story. But that one word takes on so many different meanings and shades of meaning. There is a sweet story about friends having a terrific time at the beach together and another misunderstood shark that ...

    I went into this book with high expectations because I really like Dan Santat and Aarron Reynolds. I'm sad to say, I was disappointed. I did like how the book only uses one (repeated) word but tells a story. Although, if I were Reynolds, I'm not sure I would bother taking credit for th...

    So this isn't wordless...but it is nearly wordless (three words and two of them are "dude" and "dudes" so really, lots of things happen that you have to get just from the illustrations). So good. REALLY. It is So. Good. And funny. And totally perfect for summer reading story time. ...

    This is too cute holy heck. Gorgeous illustrations, super fun. Will 100% be buying this for my little nephew. ...

    Having heard the author and illustrator read it, it's hard to say it was anything other than awesome. ...

    I love this author/illustrator duo. Who knew you could create such an elaborate story with only one word? Awesome and fun! ...

    Not completely wordless, but still lots of fun. The limited vocabulary lets kids think of their own words to go with the story. Looks like lots of fun! ...

    In this clever picture book, the text uses one word - dude - throughout the entire story. But that one word takes on so many different meanings and shades of meaning. There is a sweet story about friends having a terrific time at the beach together and another misunderstood shark that ...

    I went into this book with high expectations because I really like Dan Santat and Aarron Reynolds. I'm sad to say, I was disappointed. I did like how the book only uses one (repeated) word but tells a story. Although, if I were Reynolds, I'm not sure I would bother taking credit for th...

    So this isn't wordless...but it is nearly wordless (three words and two of them are "dude" and "dudes" so really, lots of things happen that you have to get just from the illustrations). So good. REALLY. It is So. Good. And funny. And totally perfect for summer reading story time. ...

    RTC There's not much to say about the words in this book, as there are all of two ("Dude" in its many variations, and one instance of "Splat!"), but it's in Dan Santat's illustrations that readers will come to understand what's going on here, through the facial expressions and surro...

    3.5 for me because I liked it much more upon a second reading. Relying on one word repeated throughout the story but in different typefaces and colors, this almost wordless picture book follows the surfing adventures of a beaver and a platypus. Phrases such as "FAR OUT!" and "GNARLY" a...

    I was lucky enough to hear Aaron Reynolds himself read this aloud at a conference I attended, and DUDE! It was awesome! The illustrations are perfection, too! ...

    Cute. Original. ...

    The art is super cute and I love the word Dude as much as the next person but that's literally the only word in the book. ...

    I love how the front cover and title page say "Word By" Aaron Reynolds instead of "Words By". Appropriate since the only word throughout the book is the word Dude (there is one Splat, but apparently that does not count). Dan Santat's illustrations are what make this book. This would be...

    I went into this book with high expectations because I really like Dan Santat and Aarron Reynolds. I'm sad to say, I was disappointed. I did like how the book only uses one (repeated) word but tells a story. Although, if I were Reynolds, I'm not sure I would bother taking credit for th...

    Basically a wordless book. This story is told only with the word Dude. The pictures are by Dan Santat and I love his artwork. These surfers have a simple story to tell. It is an effective story. My nephew isn't reading yet and he felt like he could 'read' this book. It might have been ...

    RTC There's not much to say about the words in this book, as there are all of two ("Dude" in its many variations, and one instance of "Splat!"), but it's in Dan Santat's illustrations that readers will come to understand what's going on here, through the facial expressions and surro...

    Duuuuude! This book got my 6 year old laughing so hard and when we were done he made me read it again, and then he wanted to read it aloud to himself after that. Brilliant illustrations. Dude is a pretty versatile word, dude. 5 stars and Happy Shark Week Dudes! ...

    3.5 for me because I liked it much more upon a second reading. Relying on one word repeated throughout the story but in different typefaces and colors, this almost wordless picture book follows the surfing adventures of a beaver and a platypus. Phrases such as "FAR OUT!" and "GNARLY" a...

    So this isn't wordless...but it is nearly wordless (three words and two of them are "dude" and "dudes" so really, lots of things happen that you have to get just from the illustrations). So good. REALLY. It is So. Good. And funny. And totally perfect for summer reading story time. ...
