Product Description:

Canine fever sets in quickly: the endpapers depict a lineup of breeds you're about to meet, the dedication is being dragged away by a mutt, and the imprint information is arrayed in the shape of a bone. / Shabby / and chic dogs." For big/small, Gravett shows an enormous Marmaduke look-alike nosing a tiny Chihuahua. For barking/quiet, a runt yips (illustrated effectively with multicoloured dashes) while two floppy-eared larger dogs wince and paw at their ears. Most evocative are the layouts for hairy/bald (the page is obscured by the small slashes representing the floating hair of the shedding pooch) and good/bad (featuring two dogs, each holding a house slipper but with dramatically different results). Though the closing revelation that the narrator is a cat is unnecessary, this is a wonderfully warmhearted ode to four-legged friends. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Daniel Kraus

Product Details


"The pacing of the simple text and scale of the drawings lend this title equally well to preschool storyimes, lap-sharing, and emerging-reader fans of Biscuit and Dog and Bear. A winner."--School Library Jorunal "A pleasingly goofy cast of characters that begs the question, is there any kind of dog this narrator does not like? The last spread reveals the identity of the narrator--which, in classic Gravett fashion, will make readers chuckle and then rethink the entire book that preceded it."--Kirkus Reviews "A wonderfully warmhearted ode to four-legged friends."--Booklist "As simple as its title and clever from the start...Gravett saves the most entertaining image for last, when the narrator's identity is revealed in a kid-pleasing finale."--Publishers Weekly
