Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Released in the Beginner Books paper-over-board format so well known to Dr. Seuss's countless fans, this slight tale stars Spot the dog, last spotted in Put Me in the Zoo. Addressing a pair of kids looking as if they'd stepped out of a '50s primer, the dejected canine explains why he has been dismissed as a has-been: "Folks saw my spots up in the air. Folks saw my spots most everywhere. The circus says that's all I do. The circus wants somebody new. But I have more that I can do... all kinds of tricks-and all brand-new!" But "brand-new" is hardly an appropriate description for the subsequent sing-song monologue, in which Spot reveals his talent for transforming himself into a variety of colors and patterns. While ably employing Seussian repetitions and cadences, the text-helped little by the stale art-lacks the vitality of Lopshire's best work. Ages 4-7.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2?Spot, from Lopshire's popular Put Me in the Zoo (Beginner Books, 1960), makes a return. This time, the agile dog's circus act has grown old and he's in danger of losing his job. Spot feels that he still has plenty of interesting tricks, which he shares with his two young friends. His stunts involve turning a variety of colors and adapting different patterns, neither of which are particularly inventive or interesting. Put Me in the Zoo earned its popularity with Dr. Seuss-like whimsy and catchy rhythming text; this latest effort, however, falls flat. The cartoon illustrations seem dated and lifeless; the text is uninspired.?Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA

The beginner books by Robert Lopshire are not "twaddle." They (New Tricks I Can Do and Put Me in the Zoo) are wonderful for primer and level 1 readers. The kids fall in love with the stories and want to read them over and over!

My Title I kids THANK YOU for a used book in excellent condition!

...our son loves "Put Me in the Zoo" so we were excited to get the other Spot books. Unfortunately, the sequel does not live up to first book.

I liked this one. It taught not only colors, but patterns as well. It was also a bit more difficult of a read than its predecessor "Put Me In The Zoo" for those whose children are reading it themselves.
