Peter Brown is excellent and writes like kids' think. His illustrations are captivating and his stories are thought provokingly charming.

He's one of the best!! I've bought all of his books from my grandson who laughs as much each time as he did when he first received them.

Well, of course, Peter's words encourage the Reader to act out each scene, so it is mutually beneficial for both participants. :-)

Chowder is great! Peter Brown is a talented and funny writer. Chowder is feeling different, so he goes to dog school where he tries to be like the other dogs. When the school decides to have a dog show, Chowder finds his own special talent. Sometimes being like everyone else isn't always the best!

We have the first Chowder and couldnt wait for this one to come out! Our daughter (4.5 yrs) loves both books - especially the illustrations - as do my husband and I. We own a bulldog so we are a bit partial though! The message of being yourself is a wonderful one that all kids need to learn and this tale did a great job of keeping our daughter's attention. Cant wait for another Chowder book!

I love this book. I am so happy a sales person at B&N recommended this when it first came out. My son and I love it and, just tonight (he's 9 now and reads by himself every night), we re-read it again. We love examining each pic and seeing how far / how much Chowder is drooling. Bravo!

Another delightful story about Chowder. My children are 3.5 and 2 years old and love the Chowder stories. Great illustrations and entertaining story (translation: you won't get bored reading it for the 50th time)!

I chose this book because I really liked the first book "Chowder." We even named our dog Chowder after these books! I gave it 5 stars because the dog is really funny and the story is good. The pictures are awesome too. I would recommend it for K through 2nd grade. (by GTrain, age 7).

From the sweet illustrations to the adorable story-line. This book is such a fun look at "being yourself" and solving problems with the help of the people you love that any grade-school child can relate to it. As a children's librarian I have used this book for a variety of Storytimes and even pre-schoolers love this. If you have a present to buy for a young child this will hit the mark!! Happy Reading!
