Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From the author of The Portable Curmudgeon series, a compendium of tales and lore about the creatures that we call ``dogs.'' Photos. Literary Guild selection in cloth. (Sept.)
Library Journal
In this collection of anecdotes, sayings, poems, and facts about dogs, Winokur, editor of The Portable Curmudgeon (NAL, 1987), has selected his material from classics and comics, old and new. Alexander Pope, Lord Byron, James Thurber, Mark Twain, and P.G. Wodehouse are here with known dog writers Roger Caras, James Herriot, Jack London, and Barbara Woodhouse. Winokur gathers similar topics together in chapters under such titles as ``Body and Soul'' on dogs' devotion to humans, and ``Gaga'' about pampered pets: ``Josephine insisted on allowing her small dog to sleep in the imperial bed over Napoleon's strenuous--and futile--objections.'' One-liners, paragraphs, or essays cover various aspects of dogdom, from breeds and heroes to language and tail wagging. This humorous book should be added to every collection where funds permit.--Helen Sondrol, Lincoln Univ. Lib., Pa.
School Library Journal
YA-- Funny quotations, heartwarming stories, daring deeds, and a bit of tragedy make this a book for everyone who loves dogs. The credits read almost like a ``Who's Who'' in literature, for it seems that many famous authors have had something to say about canines at one time or another. The book can be used for the pure joy of reading about man's (or woman's) best friend, or for a quick taste of the styles of various writers, ranging from Charles Dickens to Lewis Grizzard, from George Bernard Shaw to James Thurber, from James Herriot to Barbara Woodhouse. Don't let this one become a shelf sitter among the dog training books.-- Carolyn Koehler, Richard Byrd Library, Fairfax County, VA
