Steven Kellogg is one of my favorite illustrators.

Some of the vocabulary in the book is challenging, but the minimal text moves the story smoothly.

My two daughters insist on having this book read to them every night! They are young enough that it took a while for them to understand about the "thought bubbles" that show what Rose and Pinkerton are thinking, but they loved the illustrations of Rose as a Great Dane. I think they like Pinkerton because he's big, but he's cuddly and not threatening. It's fun to explore the pages and name all the pets they see. My four-year-old wanted to give this book a six-star rating, she likes it so much!

A Rose for Pinkerton is more fun than a boxful of kittens. The illustrations are lavish and reward careful scrutiny. (A display of "small and quiet pets" includes clams, snails, and fruit.) If you don't have a child, borrow one, and read A Rose for Pinkerton.

A Rose for Pinkerton was one of my very first favorite books when I was a little girl. I can remember looking at all the pictures and simply adoring every detailed scene in it, wondering how a person could be as imaginative in thought as I was. I just want to thank the author so very much for writing a book so full of creativity and life that a little girl fell in love with and is still to this day. Thank you for bringing happiness and light to my life with your book. :>

Format: Paperback
"A Rose For Pinkerton," is about a relationship between a cat and a dog. This fun, loving, caring, and adventurous book goes through the feelings Pinkerton and Rose(main characters) have. It shows the consequences of their actions whether they are good or bad. This is a greta book that can teach children about the responsibilities of having a pet.

Format: Paperback
Steven Kellogg follows a tried and true recipe to create his Pinkerton stories. Mix a loveable character with full page zany graphics in a story that's full of Fun, Fun, and more Fun. A second grader and I read this book together, enjoying the graphics, Pinkerton's antics, and an ending satisfying and foreshadowed.

Some of the vocabulary in the book is challenging, but the minimal text moves the story smoothly. The elaborate graphics almost short circuit the senses but warrant revisiting to find surprises and more fun.

Bottom line - A great book that makes reading a joy, not a chore.

Our 5 year old grandson opened it and exclaimed "Pinkerton".
"Read it to me." He was so happy to see this one which he hadn't
read or seen before. What could be more satisfying than A Rose for Pinkerton
and a Star Wars Lego set.
