Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Tinkles, Gracie-pants, Lovie, Fritzie, Weenie, Walter, Comet, Ike, and Jack. They're a lively mix of dogs whoseand#160;owners dress them up so they'll put their best paw forward for theand#160;dog parade, which comes at the end of the book. Until that moment, we hear each dog confront their dress-up opportunity with anything from surprise to reluctance to relief. But all have fun joining the festivities, where they show off their dog-gone best.

and#160;and#160;and#160; Alternating between doggy narrators, the text is great to read aloud, offering readers a chance toand#160;play different dog characters. The illustrations are a dynamic combination of realistic, expressive, and cute, and the text design is playful and colorful.

Review:

"Every dog has its rough day now and then, which in this high-energy picture book calls for a letter to Mr. Mutt, Canine Counselor. Whether addressing a dog put on a diet by his people, or a pooch who's scolded for barking too much, Mr. Mutt offers a written note of nuts-and-bolts advice (to the hungry dog, he recommends searching the trash, etc.) and anti-cat commentary. His snooty, tiara-wearing cat companion, The Queen, takes issue with his 'catty remarks,' writing rebuttals on pink stationery. Similar to Mark Teague's Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School in both theme and epistolary format, this sister act's (The Great Fuzz Frenzy) effort lacks LaRue's narrative flow and clever situational humor. Stevens's mixed-media scenes of the pets' ultimate altercation contain the most fun: The Queen demonstrates her prowess with a digitally manipulated ball of yarn as she, taking umbrage at a feline insult, keeps her canine cohort too 'tied up' to help his correspondents out of the doghouse. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
