For my wife's birthday, I bought her copies of a bunch of the picture books she had as a child from her parents' subscription to the Parents' Magazine Press book club. We'll be working our way through the pile over the next week or two. Unfortunately, these creaky old books don't have the nostalgic glow about them that they have for my wife, so my enjoyment is less than hers in general.

First up, we have a hound dog with an Eeyore demeanor who feels slighted that his owner is paying more attention to some new chicks that just hatched on their farm than to him. With a couple of his wildlife friends, Otter and Beaver, Fletcher hatches a preposterous plan to recapture the girls' affection, but it also unintentionally creates a big stir in their small town.

Plodding and dull. ( )

An old favorite of mine, and now a household favorite. Lots of opportunities for over-the-top drama and funny voices.

One of my childhood favorite picture books. ( )

I loved this story for ages, before I ever owned a dog.... Now that I've got my own sweet pup (and have for nearly 9 years) I know how much more crucial the love and affection shown to my fur-baby is!!! This is a great story!!! ( )
