Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Square shape, red-and-white checked border, photograph of an appealing dog�that is the format for the "Dogs Set V" series from ABDO. Simply written but quite informative, each volume begins with a short history of the dog family. Irish Setters goes on to describe the appearance, size, care, and feeding of these large, dark red hunters, as well as providing information about special requirements for the breed. The last section explains how to acquire a puppy. Readers will find it interesting to know that setters get their name from their ability to "set" or flush game without startling birds into flight. Arriving in the United States in 1875, these beautiful and mischievous dogs have had many famous owners, including Harry Truman. Each page of text is accompanied by a large, well-chosen color photo, making the slim book especially appealing to younger dog lovers or owners of this breed. A glossary and an index are included as well as the publisher's Web site, which has links to other Irish setter sites. 2003, ABDO, Talcroft
