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

At first Titus the dog has trouble discovering exactly what his job is on the farm, but then a fox's approach to the chicken coop helps him understand how valuable he is.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Titus wants to be a good farm dog, but he doesn't know how--until the night he sees a fox stealing toward the chicken coop. Ages 3-6. (Sept.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Lisa Phillips
When Titus is brought to his new home, he is told that the farm needs a good dog. Titus wants to be a good dog, but unfortunately, he doesn't have any idea what he's supposed to do. He quickly discovers that everyone on the farm, people and animals included, has his or her own special responsibility. He tries to prove his worth by doing all sorts of things such as riding on the school bus, giving milk like a cow, chasing cats, and even laying eggs, but is constantly told no, no! Discouraged, Titus crawls into his doghouse and goes to sleep. When a wolf tries to get into the chicken coop, Titus instinctively barks loudly and chases him away. Titus soon discovers his value as the family cheers him, "what a good watchdog!" Children will love the unusual, bold, colorful artwork in this book. It consists of collages made with several different types of paper painted with acrylics and watercolors, pieces of fabric, and color photocopies of pieces of fabric.
