Somehow I never minded reading these over and over again to my kids. I guess because LC is just a little naughty/ impulsive, but also lovable, w/good intentions. Something like Ramona Quimby, Clementine, and my kids. LC was practically part of the family - so we read this even though we had no interest in ever owning a dog. ( )

Little Critter trades his baseball mitt for a puppy. While his baby sister loves it, his parents are quite surprised. Yet they let Little Critter keep the puppy, as long as he takes care of the animal himself. With massive amounts of love, but less effective skill, he cares for his doggy. He feeds him every day (although he spills the food all over the place), he trains him (too bad the dog doesn't actually perform any of the commands), and he gives him a bath (although more water gets on Little Critter than the dog). Most importantly, at the end of every day, Little Critter climbs into bed and cuddles with his puppy. This book retains the sweet humor of the series, employing a child's perspective while gently laughing at it through the parent's reactions and the discrepancy between words and pictures. The illustrations are adorable, cartoony, and completely necessary to fully appreciate the story. This particular book is a loving reflection of the relationship between children and pets, yet it lacks some of the depth of other stories in the same series. ( )

It's a child's wish come true. Mercer Mayer's famous Little Critter character has brought home a puppy. HIs parents will let him keep it if he takes care of the puppy himself. Little Critter agrees. He feels he is doing a good job, but the funny illustrations make it clear that the puppy is a lot of work -- and even a lot of trouble. Does Little Critter think ithe puppy is worth it? Yes, yes, and yes, again.

Even though Puppy misbehaves, he makes a wonderful pet.
