Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Witty, deadpan captioning gives this small-format photo-essay about a Jack Russell terrier its outsize personality. Dudley knows he will never be a large dog, but realizes he has a chance to become "an athlete dog." Crisp, snappy photos show Dudley in "training": he "start[s] weight-lifting" (he is seen carrying preposterously large sticks, in classic Jack Russell fashion), swimming, walking and running in all seasons and even doing "chin-ups" (he is seen dangling by his tenacious jaws from sticks and poles). He even flies (i.e., he sails through the air to catch Frisbees and tennis balls). Dudley also discovers that he's larger than some humans, such as the new baby whom he regards adoringly in a tub at home and whose carriage he guards outdoors. From the first winning puppy pictures to the parting shot of Dudley perched high on a rock formation--"Now he can see that it's the same big world for all of us"--this optimistic little book demonstrates that good things really do come in small packages. Ages 4-8. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Dudley: The Little Terrier That Could by Stephen Green-Armytage is an irresistible, adorable pet. He is a Jack Russell Terrier who looked like a mouse at his birth. Smaller than other dogs, he becomes stronger through exercise. The color photos show Dudley lifting weights (a long branch), chasing Frisbees, flying to catch them, chinning himself and swimming--truly he is an "athlete" dog! His greatest joy comes as protector of the new baby in the family. This photogenic dog is a true star. My copy is already dog-eared. 1999, Abrams, Ages 4 to 8, $12.95. Reviewer: Jan Lieberman
Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-At birth, a Jack Russell terrier named Dudley looks "more like a mouse than a dog." As he grows, he realizes that he will never be large, but resolves to at least be athletic. He goes into training, lifting heavy sticks, going on long walks, and swimming on hot summer days. He loves to run, and he does stretching exercises and chin-ups throughout the year. Then one day, the pup discovers that he is able to fly through the air and catch Frisbees and tennis balls. He is strong and happy, and doesn't care about his size. Despite the excellent color photographs of a Jack Russell terrier demonstrating Dudley's feats throughout the seasons, the story is slight and disappointing. Still, young animal lovers may enjoy the clear, humorous pictures.-Anne Parker, Milton Public Library, MA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Dudley Captured Our Hearts

    The students in my reading group loved Dudley. They would like to write the author. Is there an address or a forwarding address that my students could send letters to Mr. Green-Armytage?
