Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Toby's enjoys several canine comforts as the family dog—until the puppy Snoop joins the family. Toby isn't please with the new addition, and he responses with disapproving barks which results in his owners sending him to his bed. After thinking about his aggressive behavior, Toby decides to inform Snoop about the house rules, starting with his personal possessions and clarifying that his bed and food bowl belong to him. Then, Toby shares his experiences on how to work with their owners to go for walks and get treats. Before long, the pair of dogs are enjoying each other's company. McLean's illustrations work with the story, showing the action and feelings between the two dogs. However, the story does not explain the reasons Toby did not initially get along with Snoop, nor do the illustrations provide clues. Another weak point of the story is that when Toby changes his mind about interacting with Snoop; there is no explanation of what Toby contemplated to have a sudden change of heart. After the story, there are some prompts for story discussions to extend thinking about the theme of the story. However, the some of the questions are set up for "yes/no" responses that do not serve as a springboard for discussion. Some children may find that the story is unsatisfying since it lacks background information that would be helpful in understanding Toby and his conflict with Snoop. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
