Starred Review. Kindergarten-Grade 2—An ordinary dog who likes to do ordinary dog things ("running and panting, sniffing and growling, rolling in things, digging and howling") happens to notice a pretty little cat and promptly falls in love. He smiles; she notices his large teeth. He approaches; she retreats. He calls up to the tree where she's hiding, "I love you!" But what she hears is, "Woof, woof, woof, woof." His affectionate whispers sound very much like growls. It's only when he digs up a very special brass bone—a trombone, in fact—that he finds a way to communicate his love in a language she understands. This affectionate and funny story is told almost musically, in rhythmic (if occasionally uneven) verse by expert storyteller Weeks. Berry's exuberant collage illustrations spill over the pages, gorgeously chaotic and filled with heart.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

My daughter is lucky enough to have over 300 books. She loves to read and we still get some from the library. We go this one because she loves animals and dogs. And I loved this book so much I bought it for her birthday.
It rhymes and I love the pictures, and the story.
Improbable? Perhaps, but our puppy and kitten are besties, and this book reminds us that love truly extends past "our own kind" and is big enough to include all comers.
