Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Take good care of the baby, Carl.”

Mother knows she can trust Carl, a large and lovable Rottweiler, to watch over baby Madeleine. What she doesnt know is that the minute shes gone, Carl and the baby gallop off on adventures. In this collection of six of Alexandra Days popular Carl stories, Carl and the baby explore a department store, a park, and even a masquerade ball—and always make it back before Mother knows theyre gone. Carl and Madeleines joyful romps, told mainly through lush, wordless spreads, are gathered together here for the first time, and will delight children and all those who take care of them.

Synopsis:

“Move over, Mary Poppins, and make room for Carl.”—Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Six stories featuring one of the most beloved characters of the pre-reading set are collected in this omnibus: "Carl Goes Shopping, Carls Masquerade, Carls Afternoon in the Park, Carl Goes to Daycare, Carls Birthday," and "Follow Carl!" Full color.

About the Author

Alexandra Day and her husband, Harold Darling, established the Green Tiger Press in 1970. In 1983, Harold and Sandra were visiting Zurich, Switzerland, when they came across a volume of old German picture sheets, one of which featured a poodle playing with a baby who was supposed to be taking a nap. This image provided the inspiration for Good Dog, Carl, which successfully began what would become an increasingly popular picture book series. The Darling’s own dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the model for the first book’s main character. Since then, three other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the sequels. The Darlings now live in Seattle, Washington, where they have a ten-thousand-book library, primarily filled with illustrated children’s books.
