Hunky Dory Found It

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Hunky Dory is an active dog that delights in running off with all sorts of the neighbors' ``treasures.'' He collects and hides them under the bed of his owner, a little girl. Each double-page spread displays one rhyming sentence in large print, e.g., ``Baby Sue kicked off her shoe.'' The phrase ``Hunky Dory found it'' follows each episode, boldly standing alone on its own spread. Simple, bright tempera illustrations capture the action, giving readers easy clues for deciphering the text. This fine combination of a sprightly narrative and uncluttered, childlike illustrations is certain to attract the youngest of readers, while preschoolers will enjoy it as a read-aloud.-Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH

With simple rhymes and oversize type, this is an appealing story about a frisky pup named Hunky Dory, who finds a dropped sock, tie, and book, a batted ball, and a toy boat in a pond. But it is the streamlined, exuberantly colored double-page spreads that humorously reveal just what Hunky Dory does with his "finds." When young Julie discovers the dog's hoard of retrieved treasures under the bed, she puts them in a sack intending to return them; but Hunky Dory grabs the sack and runs with it, too. This fun romp with a playful pooch will brighten story hours and engage beginning readers.
