Albert, the Dog Who Liked to Ride in Taxis Hardcover – January 1, 2004

Pierre Pratt's wonderful, thick paintings work hard to make up for the sometimes bewildering, often overwhelming swaths of Cynthia Zarin's text. A ruthless editor could pare this story down to a charming dog-in-the-city tale; as it is, there are too many gratuitous characters and tangents for a young reader's plot-driven mind. A better bet would be Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben's Gaspard and Lisa series (Lisa in New York, Gaspard on Vacation, etc.). Still, for children who don't mind just going with the flow, following a high-strung pooch all around Manhattan, this is an entertaining and imaginative little romp. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

The illustrations vibrant and clearly related to the story (my biggest pet peeve in children's picture books is when I'm left scratching my head as to how the images pair with the words.) The story is a little dense for very young children but I think the art is so engaging that it is still worth sharing with kids too young to absorb the full story.
