Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. The boy narrator loves dogs. He has dog posters and books, a dog-eared hat, and a barking clock, but he doesn't have a real dog--yet. Knowing he will get one for his birthday, he studies the characteristics of 11 different breeds to help him choose the perfect puppy. The artwork resembles a sketchbook. Colorful, freestyle cartoons, including many small spot-art pictures with hand-lettered captions, sweep across very busy pages, helping to present a variety of comic and interesting tidbits about dogs and their behavior. From German shepherd to Jack Russell terrier to poodle (and lots in between), each dog has a name and personality. The boy eventually does get his puppy, a "labradoodle" (poodle and Labrador hybrid), which he names Doodle. An entertaining and informative presentation with lots of appeal for children who are dog lovers, especially those who look forward to choosing their own canine friend. Julie Cummins

Does Kelly H just miss the point of the book or does she have an agenda? It's a story of finding the perfect PUPPY, not the perfect purebred!! Where is it written a mixed breed can't be perfect for a child? Her review was not a review, but an opinion. The book is enjoyable reading and a cute story. Is she reviewing the book or labradoodles?

but this was a great book. I'm pretty sure no one wants or appreciates your OPINION. This isn't the place for your comments.

The story is really cute, and the artwork is fun. The pages seem like a lot is going on, but it makes it very interesting to read it all. It's captivating for a child. I was so surprised when I read this book because it could have been written about our family!!! We, or mostly, I, did so much research on the best breed for our family considering we have two younger boys. Finally, I discovered, The Labradoodle. Their personalities and owner opinions of them sold me, not to mention they were the cutest dogs we saw. We ended up getting one, and she's the best!!! To find a story about this was really neat.

I love the art work by these authors! If they make posters, I would buy them. Not everyone knows how to draw a dog with great understanding and a modern sensibility.

Each page has lots and lots of action, stuff is happening, and the kids look and look to figure out what is happening to whom. Kind of like Richard Scarry, but with dogs only.
