Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Gifts from the heart are the best gifts of all. That's the message drummed into readers in this decidedly less-than-subtle picture book. Bailey, a frisky dalmatian, and Margot, his owner, are due to celebrate a birthday. Meanwhile, Bailey attends Margot's friend's birthday party and concludes that if he's good enough, he, too, will get an enormous pile of loot. But Margot's parents are going through tough times financially, and the presents, when the big day finally arrives, are humble, the main focus being a fun family outing for all. The tale suffers from an excess of earnestness, and children are unlikely to enjoy being preached to by a dalmatian. However, readers can't help but sympathize with the dog's dashed hopes. Chase's ever-sunny watercolors of the Manhattan setting provide a welcoming backdrop. A videocassette and an activity book are also available, either separately or packaged with the book. Ages 5-9.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Bailey, a dalmatian, and his soon-to-be seven-year-old owner Margot anxiously await their shared birthday. The pup is sure he'll receive lots of presents and spends weeks being on his best behavior. When the big day arrives, he gets an orange bandanna, a kiss, and a piece of Margot's birthday cake. The lesson, explained in a full page at the end of the book (in case it wasn't obvious), is to appreciate worth and goodness not by material rewards but by love and a sense of belonging. The text is wordy, self-conscious, and filled with extraneous details that bring the flow of the text to a distracting halt. The watercolor illustrations are appealing and convey an exciting, if totally sanitized, view of modern urban life, making the two-page spread about the history of New York City unnecessary. This well-intentioned fable is a rather pedestrian effort.
