Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Slippers at Home, Clements (Frindle) introduces the chubby hound hero of his new series and owners Mommy, Daddy, Laura and baby Edward-"four people of his very own, and he loves every one of them." Youngsters will quickly be won over by the gusto with which Slippers embraces his daily tasks-and his descriptions of them: "Two times a day, Mommy makes the round sounds. First there is the sound of the big round bowl. Then there is the sound of the nice round can." In Naptime for Slippers, the pooch really does want to take a nap, but the house is so alive with sounds, smells and other stimuli that the pup doesn't finally curl up until the last page. Of course, the canine's appeal is that he's also a kid surrogate, a role Clements addresses with moving empathy and unadorned lyricism. Here, the author describes the dog's nightly walk with Daddy in Slippers at Home: "The world outside the house is so big.... But no matter how far they go, Daddy always finds the way back home." Unfortunately, Bynum's (Altoona Baboona) watercolor-and-ink drawings lack a similar eloquence. Her sense of pacing is spot-on and she captures some standout moments (the postprandial pet stretched out on his pillow, stuffed and content). But Slippers does not quite live up to the personality suggested by the text, and the humans often look stilted. Ages 2-up. (Mar.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Slippers is a curious, energetic puppy who is having a difficult time settling down to nap. While the father is at work, the mother is gardening, the sister is at school, and the baby brother is sleeping, Slippers gets into one thing after another to entertain himself. This story is a clear window into puppy mentality, and is a great way to teach children empathy when it comes to pets. Slippers, like many puppies, does things that seem like bad behavior to people, but he is actually only acting on canine instincts. So as he laps up milk from the baby's sippy cup, in his mind he is only relieving his thirst. His natural curiosity for scents keeps him busy; he tracks down objects that smell like his family and affectionately hides them under his pillow. But every time Slippers manages to get just one eye shut, something interesting grabs his attention. Young readers are sure to relate to this playful, busy puppy. 2005, Dutton Children's Books, Ages 4 to 7.
—Cherie Ilg Haas
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Slippers is bored, and everyone in his human family is busy. Left to his own devices, the puppy finds an endless array of objects and activities with which to entertain himself, from pulling up things in the garden to burying a shoe. When the baby awakens from his nap, it's time for a nice long walk, but, of course, by this time, Slippers is exhausted and takes a well-earned rest. Bright, full-page watercolor cartoons help to tell the story. Simple and bold text floats across each page, revealing the details of the dog's every move. Slippers's antics and adorable face will appeal to young children.-Christine E. Carr, Lester C. Noecker Elementary School, Roseland, NJ Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A frisky pup creates havoc unnoticed, evidently, by his adored human family in this companion to Slippers at Home. Restless, Slippers goes out into the garden to "help" Mommy with some pulling and digging, samples milk and cereal left unattended in the kitchen, then finds and chews on a sneaker, a cap and one of Daddy's work gloves all of which leaves him ready to nap just as Mommy and little Edward are getting ready for a walk. Young readers will enjoy this dog's eye view of the world, as presented in Clements's brief, simply phrased text and Bynum's floor level scenes of a contented looking, snub nosed puppy.
