Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Day's latest does not lead the pack of her almost wordless picture books about the baby-sitting rottweiler Carl, but it nevertheless offers an idyllic vision to its readers. Carl and baby Madeleine are supposed to be napping when the neighborhood children approach the bedroom window and suggest a game of Follow the Leader. "You can be the leader!" they tell Carl amid the book's sole passage of text. Less mischievous than in his previous appearances (skipping out during naptime is Carl's only real prank here), the irresistible rottweiler conducts the children on a walk through suburban fields, pausing to lead them in stretching out their back legs, marching atop a short stone ledge, etc. With Madeleine riding Carl pony-style, they go to town, sit up and beg (successfully) for treats at a bakery and try out the revolving door of a well-stocked toy store. By the time Madeleine's mother comes to check on the nappers, everyone (including Carl's old friend the Irish terrier) is back in Madeleine's bedroom, striking sleeping-dog poses. Carl is at his doggiest: he has the kids rolling over, carrying sticks in their mouths and chasing a squirrel. Day's watercolors look so natural that it's possible to believe the story for a minute or two-certainly, the combination of grassy settings, friendly village shops and, of course, tender companionship adds up to an excursion virtually any reader would enjoy. All ages.

From Booklist

Ages 2^-7. In Carl's latest adventure, the children come to the beloved and gentle rottweiler, congregating outside his bedroom window and asking him to come outside and play follow the leader. Carl can be the leader! In typical dog fashion, Carl wakes himself with long yawns and leisurely leg stretches, and the mimicking children follow his lead. Then the group is off, balancing atop a low rock wall, chasing a squirrel, begging for treats at the bakery, admiring the toy store display window, rolling in the grass, fetching sticks, fording a stream, and then galloping home to collapse on their backs, paws (or legs) skyward, for a well-deserved rest. Day's almost wordless picture book once again lets her realistic paintings speak for themselves. Her knowledge and love of dogs and children, compounded by her keen imaginings of what they would enjoy doing together, bring joy to her playful depictions. Youngsters will delight in following Carl through these pages over and over again. Ellen Mandel
