I thought this book was really funny and cute, as it's a great twist on the traditional "boy wants a dog" story. It shows children different perspectives. The illustrations are great and bring the story to life with ease.

Absoltly LOVED. A boy wants a dog and promises the same things that a boy promises when he wants a dog. He will feed it, it can sleep with him, he will train it etc. He finally gets a dog and he teaches it to do all of the things that a bog teaches his dog, to fetch, share his food, etc. Great for discussions on the responsibilities of caring for a dog.

This is a cute litle story about a young puppy and his mother. Everyday he dreams that he will find his boy, take him home, and train him. Thinking that he is a human rather than the puppy, he seeks out a human boy in everyday life. Along the way he gets captured by the dog police and is kept in humane society. Ironically, a little boy shows up and chooses the puppy to take home. Even still, the puppy thinks that he is going to train the boy.

This is a mildly entertaining twist on the "boy wants a dog" story; in this one, a dog wants a boy. He convinces his mother to let him get a boy, then he spends awhile searching for the perfect boy. During his quest, he ends up getting taken to the dog pound. While there, a little boy finds him and they adopt each other. The illustrations are flat, have a limited color palatte, and have a sort of nostalgic feel. The twist on the story takes the book from "eh" to "okay," but nothing special. I did find it a little weird that the dog gets put in the pound, is separated from his mother, doesn't get to go back to her, and ends up writing her a note when he ends up going to live with his boy. I'm thinking this won't sit too well with many kids suffering from separation anxiety! ( )
