Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The amicable aardvark and a frisky new puppy are a natural combination--and a winning one. In the 18th title in the Arthur series, Brown entertains fans with a typically blithe narrative, bolstered by full-page pictures brimming with kid-tickling particulars. ``I'll have him trained in no time,'' promises a sincere Arthur when D.W. announces that her brother's new puppy, Pal, is ``very naughty.'' But the task proves a bit more arduous than Arthur anticipates. After the rambunctious dog makes a mess of the house one night, Arthur's parents banish him to the garage. But when the key to the garage mysteriously disappears, Pal gets to stay indoors a little longer, giving him ample time to create more chaos. Readers will love watching Arthur's attempts to train his pet, who--not surprisingly--gets the last laugh on his doting young master. Fetching. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Arthur has a puppy, but he isn't housebroken. Rather, he is braking up the house. But Arthur perseveres and finally gets the dog trained and even performing a few tricks. But this little puppy, as readers soon learn, is no dummy and has a few tricks of his own. It is amusing and kids who enjoy the TV show will want this and other Arthur books.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Arthur's new puppy wreaks so much havoc that the boy fears his parents will send the dog away. When Dad banishes Pal to the garage, the garage key mysteriously disappears. D.W. isn't very optimistic about the animal's future, but her brother insists that he can train him. Arthur then teaches the puppy to sit, stay, lay down, and perform tricks in less than a week. A predictable but satisfying ending finds Pal performing for an appreciative audience and retrieving the missing key. While experienced dog owners may find the speedy transformation unbelievable, a slight twist redeems the ending. Brown's watercolor and ink-line illustrations successfully capture the chaos. Series fans as well as uninitiated readers will find the book's humor and warmth appealing.-Pearl Herscovitch, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

    Be aware that this is a board book. It is described as hardcover.

    The book is fine, but I did not want the board book version.

    I think you should read this book because if you ever had a puppy you love it a lot. The book was about Arthur getting a new puppie. Arthur needed to know how to take care of it.
