The perfect recipe for children's picture book classic - a mischievous mutt and bathtime.

About the Author

Gene Zion and two-time Caldecott Honor winner Margaret Bloy Graham have collaborated on several favorite stories about Harry- Harry by the Sea, Harry the Dirty Dog, and No Roses for Harry.


PreS-Gr 2-In order to avoid a bath, Harry the dog hides the scrubbing brush and runs away from home. The canine enjoys a series of entertaining adventures that add to his griminess before he heads back home hungry and lonely. He's so dirty that his own family doesn't recognize him, so he must do the unthinkable and beg for a bath. Through the bubbles, he is identified and the story ends on a comfortable note with Harry curled up on his bed. Based on Gene Zion's charming book (HarperCollins, 1956), this DVD includes both the English and the Spanish versions with subtitles. Harry, brought to life with a delightful wagging tail and a short, happy bark, frolics through Margaret Bloy Graham's illustrations. Both the English and the Spanish narrations are well paced and entertaining. There is one minor flaw in the synchronization of dad's lips during the Spanish language presentation. Some characters have been updated from the original book illustrations to provide racial diversity. The jazzy soundtrack and fun sound effects help bring this classic tale to life.-Heather Acerro, Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, IN Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Children's NOTES Good Reads, Reissued This summer, old and new favorites get a second run. Originally published in 1956, Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion, illus. by Margaret Bloy Graham, chronicles the messy adventures of a runaway canine and his transformation "from a white dog with black spots to a black dog with white spots." Despite his showboating, his family doesn't recognize him until he's scrubbed clean. In this reissued edition, Graham has added splashes of color to some of her original pictures.
