Carl at the Dog Show (Carl)by Alexandra Day
Synopses & Reviews
Madeleines mom has to help Carl's Cousin, Gamble, get ready to compete in his event at the dog show, and she tells Carl and Madeleine to meet her by the show ring. Do Carl and Madeleine listen? Of course not! They immediately set off to explore--they help groom other dogs, have a snack, test out dog beds, create an agility test of their own--all with hilarious results and mom none the wiser. With its minimal text and Alexandra Day's signature art, CARL GOES TO THE DOG SHOW is sure to please Carl fans, Rottweiler lovers, and dog enthusiasts of all sorts.
"In this addition to Day's long-running series, Carl accompanies Madeleine to a dog show where a fellow rottweiler is competing. Successive wordless spreads offer warmly naturalistic depictions of the show. Carl and Madeleine watch as the competing dogs are bathed and groomed, try out the dog beds, and see the winners (categories include 'Tallest Dog' and 'Best Catcher'); readers will undoubtedly want to elect Carl for 'Best Friend.' The breeds that appear throughout are identified in appended pages for children to locate. All ages." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
