Gr. 1-3. In the third book in the Pinky Dinky Doo series, irrepressible cartoon character Pinky makes up another story to entertain and enlighten her brother, Tyler. This time Tyler is being bullied, and Pinky tells him about her problems with Lane Puppytray. As with the other books, both the narrative voice and the emotional content seem right on the mark for the age group, as is the generous scattering of goofy character names (Ms La Deedah, Mrs. Tartarsauce). The text is matched by inventive, computer-enhanced collage artwork: spirited, busy, smoothly integrated combinations of photos and bold, full-of-action color cartoons. Pinky and her pals seem to spring right off the page. The art and the energy of the story--not the "lesson" it purports to convey--are the attractions here.
