Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Organized by questions phrased the way a child might pose them, Everything Dog: What Kids Really Want to Know About Dogs by Marty Crisp answers a plethora of queries, from "Do dogs come from dinosaurs?" to "Do dogs cry?" (No, the author says, "They use body language [tail between legs, head down] or sounds [howls and whimpers]" to express grief). Photographs of adorable pups and adult dogs emphasize the author's answers. Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Crisp, an avowed animal lover and writer of dog stories, has collected questions from kids over the years. Here, she offers answers to some of their more intriguing inquiries. There is no formal arrangement, which in no way detracts from the book's usefulness. The opening query, "Do dogs come from dinosaurs?" seems silly at first. But the answer completely and clearly delves into doggie ancestry. Canine sense of smell is fully explained, and readers learn that some dogs can even sniff out cancer in humans. In all, over 30 dog-related questions are answered. The readable text is set on a generous white background. Questions are posed in larger print and light green fact circles expand on various points. The abundant full-color photographs are appealing. A "Dog Superlatives" page lists the fastest (greyhound), the quietest (basenji), and even the dumbest (Afghan hound), etc. Everything Dog offers plenty of canine facts in a browsable format. A first purchase.-Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Crisp (Totally Polar, 2001, etc.) offers a crisply written collection of canine trivia that will intrigue young readers who like to learn odd facts about favorite animals. A question in large type at the top of each page or spread is followed by a chatty answer, informally conveying information on dog-including canine anatomy, behavior, and history. Some questions are obvious choices, ("Why do dogs like people?" and "Why do dogs have cold, wet noses?") while others are more thoughtful, ("Can dogs recognize other people in your family by their smell?" or "Can dogs see what people see?"). The volume's jazzy design utilizes some creative concepts that add touches of color throughout, with the introduction and resource pages printed on bright yellow or red backgrounds. Both full-color and black-and-white photographs are used, including shots of dogs with children and with adult owners. Unfortunately the quality of the photographs is not uniform throughout, particularly in the black and white shots, and most regrettably in an unnecessarily unattractive photograph of the author on the final page. A minor drawback-this first entry in the Kids' FAQs series will be useful for both recreational reading and school reports on man's (and many a kid's) best friend. (bibliography) (Nonfiction. 7-10)
