It has room for a paw print and a lock of fur, as well as places for photographs that record such special things as a family portrait, best trick, and first birthday. The book also has a page to keep track of the puppy's medical history. Lively illustrations depicting more than twenty breeds, plus a metal keepsake medallion for the puppy's collar, make this a must for every dog owner.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
One of our favorite canine characters boasts a byline on one of his creator's two October titles. Carl, the rottweiler extraordinaire, is listed with Alexandra Day as coauthor of My Puppy's Record Book (FSG, $9.95, ages 5-up ISBN 0-374-36151-7). The authors with the greatest input, however, will be none other than the readers, who are asked to enter their pets' paw prints, locks of their fur, snapshots, medical history, etc. Those looking for inspiration in filling these pages can turn to Day's new picture book Carl Makes a Scrapbook (FSG, $12.95, all ages -31129-3), in which the intrepid dog and baby Madeleine put together an album of family mementos while Mom's back is turned (don't miss the long-haired dachshunds dressed for Halloween on the page labeled ``Holidays''). q

Day, the author of the popular adventures of Good Dog Carl and his baby pal, has also produced My Puppy's Record Book. Fans of the Carl series who have a new pup and are inspired to record its growth and achievements will enjoy having this puppy journal.

Meet the Author

Alexandra Day and her husband, Harold Darling, established the Green Tiger Press in 1970. In 1983, Harold and Sandra were visiting Zurich, Switzerland, when they came across a volume of old German picture sheets, one of which featured a poodle playing with a baby who was supposed to be taking a nap. This image provided the inspiration for "Good Dog, Carl," which successfully began what would become an increasingly popular picture book series. The Darling's own dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the model for the first book's main character. Since then, three other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the sequels. The Darlings now live in Seattle, Washington, where they have a ten-thousand-book library, primarily filled with illustrated children's books.
