With expressive illustrations by Diane deGroat, a new delicious recipe from Ree Drummond, and the hilarious antics of Charlie, this picture book is a surefire hit!

There's nothing that makes Charlie's soul rejoice more than naps and bacon. But when his daily routine of eating and sleeping is interrupted by a new baby calf, Abigail, Charlie is not happy! Things go from bad to worse when Charlie sees everyone rubbing Abigail's belly—instead of his; feeding her—instead of him; and tucking Abigail in at the end of the day—in Charlie's bed. Will Charlie be able to adjust to the new addition?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
09/01/2014
K-Gr 2—Charlie the Ranch Dog is concerned. His family has brought a calf inside the house. He knows that "Mama and the kids" will give the calf lots of tender loving care, but when he feels they have forgotten to attend to his needs, he ends his day dreaming about "a time when a dog could lie on his own bed. A time when a dog could get a bath and a belly rub from time to time. A time before this silly ol' calf ever showed up." Charlie's quiet tolerance is rewarded by morning, though. He receives a thank-you lick on the head from the reinvigorated calf. Charlie's enviousness is easy to understand when looking at deGroat's realistic illustrations. His longing for attention is reflected in his facial features and body language. The watercolor-over-digital-art paintings make readers feel at home. Drummond includes a child-friendly recipe for Egg-in-a-Hole at the back of the book.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
