4.0 out of 5 stars Two Girls and a little dog, July 29, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Curiosity (Paperback)
Don't you just love to read? I do, especially when wire fox terriers are involved. I am filled with anticipation, wondering what is going to happen. Wires can be so unpredictable! I, myself, possess one of a wire's greatest traits: curiosity. So when I was offered the opportunity to read and review Curiosity, by Gerald Allen Wunsch (you may recognize that last name - Martha's husband!), I could hardly wait to dig into this charming children's book. My qualifications for being a reviewer stem largely from the fact that I, too, am a published children's author. I heard early on that Jerry was writing this book, and am excited to see it in print at last.

Curiosity is a children's novel about a summertime adventure. Abby and George Wanamaker live in rural southern Indiana with their wire fox terrier, Laird. Their granddaughter, Ginger, and her friend, Irene Fong, are spending a month with them while the girls' parents are traveling in Europe. But the parents aren't the only ones who are having exciting adventures. With the help of the curious Laird, some late-night escapades, and the discovery of an unusual old coin, the girls discover that the Wanamaker's 150 year-old house is an important part of American history.

Curiosity is full of delightful illustrations by Irene Joslin. She captures the attitude and expressiveness of a wire fox terrier well. Jerry has a special section at the end of his book that gives more information on wire fox terriers, complete with pictures of his real-life inspiration, Laird. It gives a well-rounded picture of the breed, including history, temperament, and grooming information.

I do hope you'll pick up a copy of Curiosity. You will smile with recognition at Laird's antics and the fun he contributes to the story. I wouldn't at all be surprised to read more of his adventures sometime in the future. After all, where there is curiosity, there is bound to be adventure!
