Lovable white pooch McDuff has a real knack for finding his way home--and into readers' hearts. A handy little box with a snap closure and a red handle holds three of Rosemary Wells and Susan Jeffers's quaint, 1930s-style tales about this West Highland terrier, as well as a sheet of nine McDuff stickers. In McDuff Moves In
, the resourceful pup bounces out of a dogcatcher's truck and finds his way to a new home with a couple named Lucy and George. He manages to get lost while chasing a rabbit in McDuff Comes Home
, but a nice old woman straps him into her motorcycle's sidecar and helps him find home again. "Only child" McDuff is in for a bit of a rude awakening in McDuff and the Baby
: "Every day in every way McDuff was happy. But one day a stranger arrived. It was a baby." McDuff needn't have worried. No one can resist his charms, even in competition with a newborn.
These three small read-aloud books, sized just right for a child's hands, are a wonderful introduction to the dreamy, old-fashioned series by two well-loved creators of children's books. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter
