"With skillful use of repetition, an agreeable and entertaining animal cast, and a tidy ending of the best kind, dog people and cat people alike have reason to approve."
(Publishers Weekly (starred review))

 "A rollicking romp."
(Kirkus Reviews)

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best picture books that I have ever read! It is so cute!! It even had an unsuspected twist that brought a huge smile to my face. Poor Dog is left in charge when his people have to go out. He is left in charge of five naughty cats. The cats, while not devious, love to play, and Dog is having a hard time keeping tabs on all one, two, three, four, five of them. When the tensions run the highest, and the house couldn't get any messier, Dog succumbs to a nap to refresh himself, allowing the cats to save the day. The cats all love Dog, which made me love them.

If you have young readers at home, this is a fun book with big, bold illustrations that is sure to please. Even if you don't have young readers, sneak Dog in Charge home from the library for a quick, delightful read.

Grade: A

A fast and fun read for preschoolers and young children
When Dog is left alone to watch over his five feline companions, he thinks it will be easy. But five cats can cause a lot of mischief, and Dog learns that being in charge is hard work. Filled with beautiful illustrations, and cute characters, Dog in Charge is a fun read for preschoolers and young children.
Recommended for readers age 3-8.

My son had this book, but then lost it and was devastated. I was looking for an inexpensive copy as a replacement. This book was in near perfect condition and you would think it was new when looking at it.

I was very satisfied with this purchase.
