As for the critics of this book: Give me a break! Do you live in a yurt? So what if he smokes a pipe? He doesn't wear pants, either. Furthermore, dogs eat MEAT, not tofu. Mr. Dog also likes raw eggs. And the Boy's Little Boy balanced his meal with a "bright green vegetable" and even gave some to Crispin's Crispian to put in his bone soup. I'm sure Mr. Dog's bread was whole grain and his milk was skim, and he probably purchased the strawberries he so liked from his local organic farmer's market. Moreover, he bought his bone from his local butcher (not Winn Dixie) and took it home in a brown paper bag (not plastic). If you want to cultivate good and balanced eating habits (dairy, grains, meat and leafy green vegetables), and support local growers, then I'd give this book "two paws up" for intelligent and responsible life choices.
The only draw-back to this edition is that some of Garth Williams' illustrations are missing from the original, and the book is "abridged" (the book doesn't contain the wonderful line "So they played together, and the boy threw him sticks to chase all through the shining, sun-drenched morning" or Williams' two-page illustration of this magical moment). Golden Books has done this with a number of re-issues for reasons I can't fathom.
At the price and the content of this book, it's a great purchase. I'm sure I'll be reading it to my nephew thats on the way in the coming years.
