My favorite book as a child. But the author is MARGARET WISE BROWN who much later wrote GOODNIGHT MOON! Garth Williams is the illustrator. Get it right, Barnes and Noble.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I am sixty-one years old now and I remember my mother reading this to me as a little girl. I read this book to all of my children and then to my grand daughter.
It is just a darling story about an independent old dog who likes his own company AND strawberries. ... until.... he meets a lonely little boy to share his life with.
The story ends with Good Night and Sweet Dreams and that's how I always ended my night's reading with my children - Mr. Dog or not.
So, he's a grand old dog... and a marvelous book... and will forever in my heart also be a part of my family.

This is a wonderful story of an independent dog who loves a boy.It was a favorite of the whole family. I remember it so well from my childhood. Later, when I was grown, my parents had an identical looking dog named 'Crispy' after Crispins Crispian.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
