Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Morgan is a nuisance. He begs. He takes food from Dad's plate. He knocks over the dinner table. He chews Mom's slippers, the couch pillows, and Amy's backpack. Morgan even howls when he's put in his pen. So, Mom and Dad decide to trade Morgan for a smaller dog, named Peanut. Peanut is not fun like Morgan. She sleeps all the time. Her hair is too short to braid. She doesn't knock over the dinner table. Peanut is not Morgan. One day, the phone rings. It is Peanut's former owners. They have adopted Morgan. Morgan misses his old family and he is coming for a visit. Morgan arrives and Peanut returns to his former owners. Morgan is no longer a puppy. So, he can stay. Morgan has come home. Dog lovers will enjoy this charming book. The charming illustrations and happy ending make it a read again and again book for young readers. 2004, Marshall Cavendish, Ages 4 to 8.
—Mindy Hardwick
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Morgan is the kind of dog that children adore and parents grow weary of very quickly-a fluffy, playful, slobbery pup that sleeps on the bed and chews Mom's pink slippers. After one too many disasters and disruptions, Mr. Morrison has had enough and, in spite of his children's tears, declares that the animal must go. He returns from the pound with a sweet, shorthaired, not-so-cuddly beagle that sleeps all day. Here the contrived plot takes its predictable turn, as the Morrisons get a call from Morgan's new family, the Ramirezes, saying he's depressed; and by the way, they sure miss their old beagle, Peanuts. By happenstance, they've adopted one another's pet. Thus, each dog returns to its proper family, and all is well with the world. The bright, cheerful, wonderfully expressive illustrations are the best thing about this book. The computer-generated spreads have richly hued, textured surfaces and the humorous tableaux bounce with activity. Facial expressions (both human and canine) are priceless, in particular those that belong to an increasingly exasperated Mr. Morrison.-Teri Markson, Stephen S.
