K-Gr. 3. A sandy, dandy, golden retriever named Tinka and the boy who owns her spend a day at the beach. The charm of the simple scenario is heightened by short, snappy rhymes and comical acrylic illustrations that energise the fun in the sun. Tinka and her boy slide side by side, play Frisbee, and have a tug-o-war over candy bars and a teddy bear. When Tinka grabs the suntan lotion, she's an "icky-sticky-licky" dog; on the way home, she's a "sprayed-by-a-skunk" dog; after a tomato juice bath, she's a "climb-up-in-a-lap" dog. The rhyme, which is never tiresome, may spark some rhyming take-off exercises at home or in a classroom. From the enticing cover showing Tinka sporting "shades" to the dog's always amusing facial expressions, kids will relish this clever, sharing and caring story. Julie Cummins
