Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

First published in 1964, Charlotte Zolotow's The Poodle WhoBarked at the Wind, starring the lovable noisy pup, gets newillustrations by Valerie Coursen. Her paintings of the small blackpoodle aptly contrast the canine's busy, protective bounce (andbarking) with the forlorn silence that follows while the children areaway in this timeless homage to a cherished family pet.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Originally published in 1964 (Lothrop; o.p.) with illustrations by Roger Duvoisin, and again in 1987 (HarperCollins) with illustrations by June Otani, this warm story tells of a little black poodle who barks at everything. He annoys the father more than the other members of the household. But one day when the two are left alone together, the dog becomes quiet and still. The man writes in his study while the pup presses quietly against the door and stays right by his side, without stopping to eat or drink or bark at the mailman. It is then that the bonding begins, as the father realizes the pet misses the rest of the family. This newly illustrated edition has spirit and life, and the mixed-media collages give the story a completely different feel. It offers a new perspective and a great deal of humor along the way. And no one will be able to resist this pooch.
