This is a wonderful book and you don't need to be a child to enjoy it. I am a Debbie Macomber fan and have read all of the Blossom Street books, so I am familiar with the main characters, but even if you aren't familiar, it is still an enjoyable story. Ellen's concern about moving away from Blossom Street is realistic. Then searching the new neighborhood for her lost dog introduces the people in this community, eases her fears and she makes a new friend! This book would make a great gift, I would also consider giving it to a classroom or child care program for their library.

It would be difficult for me to come up with something I did not like about this book. It would be difficult for me to write even one critical line. This work has much going for it on several levels.

First, it is a story which includes a dog; a Yorkie, to be exact. I am a complete push over for any story which includes a dog and terriers of any breed are my favorite. Secondly, the authors have addressed a subject that is quite important and most pertinent in relation to children and our culture today. Being a very mobile society, children are being moved here and there across the country as their parents move from job to job, city to city and beyond. There is much anxiety involved with these moves and anything, including little books, that is able to relieve this anxiety is a good thing as far as I am concerned.

It is moving day on Blossom Street and Ellen, the little girl of the story and her dog, Baxter and packing up. They say good bye to the old house, pack their belongings and are gone and Ellen confides to Baxter that "I don't want to move either" She assures Baxter that they will make new friends and their new home will be lovely. One wonders at this point if Ellen is reassuring Baxter or if Ellen is reassuring Ellen.

Anyway, the move is made and it does not take Baxter long to find a hole in the fence and go exploring himself. Baxter is missing! The search is on. Through this search Ellen meets her neighbors, explores the town and indeed, makes new friends - as does Baxter.

I love the art work in this little book. The small village that Ellen and Baxter move to looks more like a small and clean French Village than anything else and the inhabitants are delightful.

Until reading this book, I never used the phrase Yippy, Yappy Yorkie. Now I find myself using it all the time. We have a Yorkshire terrier so the alliteration in these words and tie to the breed makes perfect sense. Baxter, the Yorkie, is the central figure of this fun book, THE YIPPY, YAPPY YORKIE IN THE GREEN DOGGY SWEATER.

Ellen and her family (including Baxter) is moving. The boxes are packed and arrive at the new home. While Ellen unpacks her room, Mom lets Baxter wearing his green sweater out into the backyard. Then they can't find Baxter who has wiggled through a small hole in the fence. Ellen and her mom search their new neighborhood and find Baxter with another Yorkie in their flower shop. Ellen makes a new friend April and Baxter makes a new friend, Iris.

I loved this well-told story and the beautiful illustrations from Sally Anne Lambert. I highly recommend this book. Many families will find it to be a household favorite.

As a Yorkie owner I found the description and antics of the Yorkie in the story really mirrored the personality of my Yorkies. The illustrations were so pretty. I enjoyed reading the book to my 3 year old granddaughter.
