Originally published as a board book, this endearing story about dog buddies is now available in an easy-reader format. The text is simple enough for new readers to master, and the visual jokes enhance the deadpan narrative. The brightly colored illustrations enliven the amusing story.

PreS-Gr 1—This day in the life of two dogs is a perfect choice for children just starting to read. A simple declarative sentence appears on each page and is matched to the boldly-outlined cartoon illustrations. In addition to the story, there are three bonus activities: sequencing, matching, and "Dog-Libs." VERDICT A great addition to any early reader collection.—Patrick Tierney, Dr. Martin Luther King Elementary School RI

PreS-KWhen this canine duo mistake a skunk for a kitten, the results are disastrous. Pilkey once again brings his slightly skewed humor to the forefront as the title characters make a smelly situation worse by disrupting a party. Babies and toddlers will find the colorful illustrations appealing but the humor will be better appreciated by older children. The simple sentence structure and repetitive text make this board book ideal for those just learning to read.Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA Copyright 1999 School Library Journal Reviews
