Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Part of a beginning reading series called "My First I Can Read Book." this little gem proves that, in the hands of a craftsman, a limited vocabulary book can tell a real story that is of real interest to its readers. Biscuit is a puppy who has jist as much trouble getting ready for sleep as his young human companion does. The full color pictures by the award-winning illustrator beguile, while the repetitive text entices young readers to read.
Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Second in a series of "Biscuit" stories about a small brown puppy, it is one of the "My First I Can Read Book" designed for the emergent reader. With 3-8 words per page, repetition and simply drawn illustrations, this 24 page story of Biscuit's adventure with his newly found duckling friend will be a hit for Biscuit friends.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Capucilli and Schories team up again for another beginning reader featuring Biscuit the puppy. Here, the dog and his young owner find a duckling and reunite it with its family in the pond. Colorful and appealing watercolor illustrations, surrounded by ample white space, support the text. Biscuit's face is filled with new-puppy curiosity and his tail seems to be constantly wagging. Short, simple sentences in large-sized print contribute to the readability. Plenty of "quacks" and "woofs" encourage expressive telling aloud. Sure to be a popular choice.Sharon R.

Kirkus Reviews
Biscuit Finds A Friend (24 pp.; PLB May 11, 1997; 0-06-027412-3; PLB 0-06-027413-1): A bland throwback to another era in the My First I Can Read series. Biscuit (Biscuit, 1996, not reviewed, etc.) finds a duckling who has lost its parents. With the help of his girl owner, Biscuit reunites duckling and parents, with a dip in the drink and plenty of woofing and quacking to cement the friendship. Not much happens: The restricted vocabulary puts this book in a league with Dick and Jane's leaden exploits, and while the illustrations are sweet, they don't pack much oomph.
