Children's LiteratureAGERANGE: Ages 3 to 6.
Given the current little girl obsession with everything princessy and pink, along with the eternal fascination with dogs, it is probably inevitable that someone would combine the two. Perhaps it is just as well that the author/artist of this effort is only generically identified so no one can be blamed for the way the book goes out of its way to be ever so clever. The text offers a loose Cinderella-type tale complete with a fairy dogmother and a surplus of princesses. The illustrations begin as photos of a variety of dog species that have fairy tale details "Photo Shopped" in, such as the Peter Pan hat and shoes that dress up one potential prince. Although the book is supposed to be for preschoolers, few three to six year olds are likely to do much but possibly enjoy the pictures. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
