Publisher Comments:

For a teeny-tiny dog seeking a home in a daunting world, big hopes — and a bit of ingenuity — go a long way.

Itty Bitty is a very, very tiny dog. But when he finds an enormous bone, he goes straight to work, gnawing out doors and windows and hollowing out the entire inside. When his work is done, however, his cavernous house still feels incomplete. Where can he find some itty-bitty things that will make this bone a home? Everyone from dollhouse lovers to grown-ups setting up a home of their own will fall for this comical tale of an optimistic canine who is small in stature but huge in charm.

Review:

"Where does a tiny dog find just the right decor for his hollowed-out-bone house? Why, the 'teeny-weeny department' at a huge store downtown, of course! Such is the premise of this sweet and silly picture book that introduces a sunny pup of small size but big personality. Itty Bitty, a tan-colored dog not even as tall as a blade of grass, just wants to feel comfy in his new digs. A spread that shows him speeding down the road on his shopping trip, riding on a tricycle fashioned out of a walnut shell, is laugh-out-loud funny. Bell's (Bee-Wigged) crisp acrylic and ink artwork features blocks of color and simple stylized shapes on grainy, speckled backgrounds. Itty Bitty is reminiscent of a character Ed Emberley might create in one of his drawing books — a square body, triangle head and stick legs. But his pinpoint eyes, gentle smile and frequent exclamations of delight ('Satisfactory!') give him lots of warmth. Ages 3 — 7. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Ame Dyckman, July 9, 2009 (view all comments by Ame Dyckman)
Big PB Planet applause for Itty Bitty by Cece Bell, (Candlewick Press, 2009). It’s an adorably absurd situation when a two-inch dog comes across a bone, and decides it’s big enough to call home. Itty Bitty moves in, but realizes that the spare space doesn’t feel homey yet—he needs some itty-bitty furnishings! But will Itty-Bitty find anything his size in the big department store? The simple, sweet, low-conflict story and the cheerful illustrations will appeal to itty-bitty readers, and parents will chuckle at the puns contained in the “little” title puns on the bookshelf. (Plus, Itty Bitty’s vehicle is just about the cutest mode of transportation ever!) Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today. pbplanet.blogspot.com
