No, No, Titus!by Claire Masurel, Shari Halpern
Bright, bold collages of this endearing puppy's hilarious efforts
"Welcome to your new home, Titus," says the farmer. "This farm needs a good dog!" Titus wags his tail. He wants to be a good dog. But what is a good dog supposed to do? He tries everything-from helping the farmer plow the fields to laying eggs with the hens-but all he hears is, "No, No, Titus!"
Bright, bold collages of this endearing puppy's hilarious efforts to prove his worth will charm young readers, who will join in the cheering when Titus finally gets it right!

REVIEWS: "Titus wants to be a good dog in his new home on the farm, but he can't figure out what that means; when he tries to board the school bus with the children, chase mice or lay eggs, or help the farmers plow and milk, all he hears is 'No, no, dogs don't . . .' What DO dogs do? . . . Halpern's neat, brightly lit cloth-and-paper collages make perfect accompaniments to this simply told story; the widely spaced farm buildings are set on a grassy hill dotted with flowers, and Titus, golden, flop-eared, the picture of puppylike confusion, draws the eye even when the point of view is pulled back. Treat fans of Eric Hill's Spot books to a story with a real plot."--Booklist
