Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Gaspard is an anthropomorphic dog. He has taken a job as a dog walker for his neighbors and uses the profits to buy himself a shiny new racecar key chain. At school, his classmates admire his treasure and Gaspard fears someone will try to steal it. Gaspard swallows the key chain and suddenly he doesn't feel so well. He goes to the hospital, where the friendly doctors and nurses x-ray him and surgically remove the key chain (in a painless operation). As a get well present, his mother brings him a much larger racecar that he could never swallow. If you can get past the poor judgment of Gaspard, this book could be used with a child who is being hospitalized. The story and the brightly colored artwork would appeal to a young child. The book is one of a series of stories in "The Misadventures of Gaspard and Lisa" series. 2001 (orig. 1999), Alfred A. Knopf, $9.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer:Julie Eick Granchelli
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Two more titles about this pair of anthropomorphic dog pals. In the first, Gaspard tells about a class trip to the Museum of Natural History, during which he and Lisa are left behind past dark. Next, Gaspard goes to the hospital after swallowing a key chain so no one would steal it. Neither tale is credible and the hospital account is uncomfortably cavalier about a bad decision that results in a painless surgery filled with fun dreams, plus the reward of a giant race car after the operation. The smudged, primitive cartoon acrylics feature cute dog stances and expressions, but the text frequently breaks or wraps at awkward times. Solely for fans of these canines.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
