Cute story of the adventures Carl, the dog and babysitter, takes the baby on while the baby's mother thinks he is minding the child in her carriage. The background for the detailed pictures was too dark. ( )

When Madeline and Carl (Madeline's Rottweiler caretaker) visit a daycare, teacher Mrs. Manning gets locked out of the building. As Mrs. Manning devises various methods to unlock the door, Carl keeps the young children on schedule with their daily activities. Very little dialogue and vivid pictures make this book a delightful experience for preschoolers. ( )

When mother goes shopping in a large department store, Carl, a Rottweiler, is left to mind the baby. The two embark on several adventures, including letting the animals from their cages in the pet department. Imaginative and clever picture book for preschoolers!! ( )

Meh. Too much like the first book, except in this case the troublemakers leave the department store staff to clean up the messes they make instead of doing so themselves. I did like the bit about the pet shop... ( )

In Carl goes Shopping, the mother briefly leaves Carl the rottweiler to attend to her baby. The mother believes that Carl is a faithful and obedient dog. She is completely unaware that as soon as she leaves, Carl and the baby take the elevator and explore a department store. They visit a market, try on clothes, lie on rugs, play around with electronics, and unlock the cages of several animals at the pet store. The dynamic duo create a havoc as they get into all kinds of mischief. An enjoyable and humorous story for young children.
