Publisher Comments:

What makes a puppy's day complete?

Swimming and then shaking water all over you. Catching "presents" for you and then bringing them inside the house. Rolling in your nice wool sweater. Snuggling in your lap.

In their second ode to canine companions, Patricia MacLachlan, Emily MacLachlan Charest, and Katy Schneider once again offer an irresistible glimpse into the mischievous canine mind. Captured here are adorable confessions and spirited accounts of the things that puppies do—and don't do—while in search of love, adventure, and treats from the table.

Review:

"Whoooooooo's a good doggie? In this follow-up to Once I Ate a Pie (2006), the soulful-eyed canine poets certainly believe they are. The narrator of one poem declares: 'I'm perfect./ I know because they tell me so,' which mitigates the fact that 'I only chewed one thing, one time.' In 'Rules,' it's asserted that obedience is a state of mind: 'Here are my rules:/ Eat all you want./ Sleep when you want--/ On the couch/ On the bed/ On your silk pillow./ Drooling is good.' Once again, this mother-daughter team's short, blank verses and Schneider's boldly brush-stroked portraits unleash the adorable canine id in all its (mostly) unrepentant, cuddly glory without teetering into preciousness. Ages 4 — 8. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
