PreS-Gr 1-- Richard wants a dog, but his mother thinks a dog is too much trouble. So begins the youngster's adventures with all sorts of other pets, from caterpillars to bears. Amusing pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings show how the boy converts each substitute into his longed-for canine. Even a caterpillar can be made to look like a Lhasa Apso in his imagination. When his mother gives in, Richard admits that a dog is a lot of trouble--``but it was worth it.'' The illustrations make the most of the absurdity of the mother's ``no dog'' rule taken to its extreme and of Richard's stubborn refusal to be put off. The boldly colored pictures filled with funny details embellish the story nicely, particularly the final scene, which shows all of the previous pets as stuffed animals. --Anna Biagioni Hart, Martha Washington Library, Alexandria, VA-
