5.0 out of 5 stars Great for animal-loving kids (& nostalgic parents), August 24, 2011
This review is from: Eddie the Dog Holder (Hardcover)
I've loved Eddie the Dog Holder since I was a kid, and now my son loves it too. The "Eddie" series may have represented everyday childhood experiences when they were written (1940s to 1970s), but now they're a window into a lost era of childhood when kids roamed free. Eddie and his friends aren't the Kid Genius type of character, but they're what I like to think of as can-do kids, each with some kind of special interest and ability: Eddie loves animals and collecting old junk (excuse me, Valuable Property); his friend Anna Patricia is an artist. The two kids team up on a business scheme: Anna Patricia will paint portraits of people's dogs, while Eddie gets the dogs to pose long enough to be painted. What could possibly go wrong? Plenty -- luckily, all of it good comic material. A lighthearted, character-oriented book for kids 7 to 10, with characters who will feel like treasured friends. (BTW, will someone please fix the website, which has attached this book's listing to reviews for a completely different book by a different author?)
