Baby Chub Chop has come to visit, bringing chaos in his wake. Gracie and Fabio have their doggy noses out of joint. Chub Chop is getting all the attention. What’s worse, Baby Chub Chop is just about to walk. The big moment comes when he is alone. On his first independent walk/rampage he breaks things, he hides things, and generally creates a mess. Who gets the blame? Not cute baby Chub Chop but innocent Gracie and Fabio.

It is up to Gracie to sniff out the clues and prove that Baby Chub Chop is the culprit.

Told in hilariously rhyming couplets in the tradition of Dr. Seuss, embellished with delightful illustrations, Gracie the hound, first introduced in My Sister Gracie, continues to win readers’ hearts from Iceland to Tasmania.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Gracie and Fabio, the family dogs, have it all. They have bones to chew, rubber balls, and furry rugs. Then, Baby Chub Chop comes to stay! He cannot run, jump, or walk. But, the family gushes and fusses over him. Then, Baby Chub Chop learns to walk, and the house will never be the same. He gathers mother's slippers, the telephone, pillows, china plates, and rugs and dumps them in the bathtub. He even spills ink on the floor. Guess who gets blamed? The dogs! Out to the dog house they go! Until Gracie slips in and picks up Baby Chub Chop's mess. Finally, it is time for Baby Chub Chop to go home, and the dogs lead the family right to the inky footprints. Guess who they belonged to? That is right, Baby Chub Chop! Young readers will delight in the expressive illustrations, and cheer for the family dogs as they reclaim their rightful place in the family. 2004, Tundra Books, Ages 3 to 5.
—Mindy Hardwick
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Gracie, a large brown dog, and Fabio, a small white one, are content with their lives until their owners baby-sit Baby Chub Chop while his parents travel to Timbuktu. Gracie figures she can tolerate a visitor for a week or two, but Fabio warns the child, "Stay away./Leave me alone./Don't touch my rug,/My ball, my bone." When the adults are not looking, Baby Chub discovers that he can walk and proceeds to make a mess of the house. Of course, Gracie and Fabio are blamed and banished "To the doghouse!" Later on, the pets are forgiven when they show their owners some inky footprints that reveal the true culprit. This comical tale will have kids identifying with the very human reactions of these animals when Baby Chub invades their space. The rhyming text keeps the action moving quickly, but it is the humorous watercolor-and-ink illustrations that portray the pets with funny facial expressions that make this story amusing rather than lesson oriented. While certainly predictable, it will engage readers.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
