Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This "off-color, disjointed tale" with a medical pretext is "likely to inspire hilarity in the toilet-humor crowd," said PW. Ages 4-6. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-The Gumboyles' pet beagle, Dr. Dog, teaches his family that smoking hurts their lungs, that germs can attack tonsils, and that nits live in hair. He then proceeds to explain that Baby Gumboyle caught worms by not washing his hands after using the toilet. He issues the admonition, ``Never scratch your bum and suck your thumb!'') The coup de grce, however, is Granddad's gastrointestinal problem from eating too many baked beans and drinking too much beer; ``...he farted so hard he blew the roof right off the house!'' Children will no doubt learn a few hygiene lessons here, and find this story funny. Despite the silliness of the presentation, the information is basically accurate and important. The illustrations are typical Cole-full of humorous detail, including cartoon drawings of the ``tubes'' inside the human body. On-target health lessons delivered with a decidedly different slant.-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY

    Dr Dog

    I love the sense of humour portrayed in babette Cole's story books, in particular Dr Dog, as a student teacher i believe stories like these help children to learn hygenic practices which are extremely important. I will definately share these stories with my future students, hopefully they're available in Big Books, I have two children under four years of age and they are already starting to recite the words as they hear them highlighting how easily accessable the concepts are the importance of reading to young children.

    A hilarious way to learn

    My kids asked me to read this one over and over because it is so funny. What they didn't realize is that they were learning good hygiene habits as well. Babbette Cole is one funny writer
