This book is about two fleas and the two fleas are on a dog. One wants to travel and one wants to stay. The flea that wants to stay is telling the flea that wants to leave to stay. It wants to stay because the dog is so warm and comfortable. The flea that wants to leave is telling the flea that wants to stay to leave. It wants to leave because it thinks the dog is boring. The two fleas leave. They go on a chicken, then a porcupine, then a mole, then a turtle, and then a duck. Then something happens.

We recommend this book because one of the fleas wants to stay and one wants to leave. It's interesting that two fleas have different minds.
