Kibbles can't compare to her ma's cooking, however, and when it starts to rain, Ginnie Mae starts to reconsider her care-free lifestyle. "Pa says I can go back to being myself anytime I've a mind to. So maybe I'll just saunter on in and wash up for supper," she decides.
This story has some great comic moments that make my four-year-old laugh out loud, and even bring a smile to his oh-so-sophisticated six-year-old sister's face. I like the fact that even though the story is told through Ginnie Mae's voice, Ma and Pa are presented as perfectly reasonable parents. More importantly, the author, Suzanne Williams, lets the story play to it's logical outcome without moralizing. She allows her readers to draw for themselves the conclusion that good manners are a fair trade-off for the blessings of civilization. Tedd Arnold's illustrations are priceless, adding wry humor to an already amusing story. He gives us Ginnie Mae at the dinner table, the food flying everywhere, and Ginnie Mae and Ol' Red sitting side by side on their haunches, scratching at fleas. Funniest of all is the teeth-baring grin Ginnie Mae gives her annoying little brother at the end of the book, and his startled reaction to it.
In the end it all gets too much for Ginny and she yells "I want to be a dog!" Her parents ask her if she is sure & then let her go out to live with the dog who not only shares his kennel but also his fleas! When the rain comes pouring down Ginny decides that it would be best to to go back inside and wash up for supper.
Lovely book - well written and illustrated.

The book cover and pages are a little wrinkled and crinkled so I was a little disappointed in the condition of the book. It will do but not quite what I expected.Published 5 months ago by Karen C.
