Oh, Tucker!

Overview

Steven Kroll's accident-prone pooch will charm anyone who's ever loved a puppy. Tucker hasn't even had breakfast yet, and he's already zooming and zigging and zagging, wagging his tail and knocking over the clock, the radio, and a glass of water on Thelma's parents' nightstand. Full color.

Even though Tucker causes chaos as he bounds through the house, knocking things over, his owners find it difficult to scold him because he is ...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Bursting onto the scene like a force of nature, Tucker, a rambunctious pooch, has a penchant for pandemonium. Wherever he goes"WHAM!"he creates a trail of disaster, leaving broken china, overturned furniture and overall chaos in his wake. When his young mistress calls him in to breakfast, he bounds inside and hurtles through the house, leaping onto beds ("Mom and Dad were fast asleep. Tucker didn't mind"), licking faces and knocking absolutely everything out of whack. He may be a trial and a tribulation, he may be the source of much exasperation, but lucky for him he's a much-loved dog ("Such a nice dog. Such a friendly dog. Who could possibly scold him?"). Tucker's boisterous energy emanates from each element of this tightly knit collaboration, even the typefacesurging across the page in uneven, curving lines and varying in size, it makes as much of a statement as Tucker does. Nash (Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp) pares down the compositions and revs up the motion. His kinetic watercolor, pencil and ink illustrations harness Tucker's exuberance and send it zooming over the spreads. Readers are likely to get swept up in the momentum. Ages 4-8. (May)
Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Tucker is a typical large, bouncy dog. He makes a lot of mistakes. He's also such a happy dog that it's impossible to be angry with him. So even when he lands on Mom's lap, or knocks over the trash, or clears a coffee table with his wagging tail, his family's reaction is always, "Oh, Tucker!" Charming illustrations make this book really fun.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3--When Thelma's dog, Tucker, is called to breakfast, he goes bounding through the house knocking over anything that's not nailed down. The story is punctuated with a "Wham!" each time he crashes into something, followed by the refrain "Oh, Tucker!" as the child sees what happens. The exuberant pup finally comes to rest when he sees and digs into his breakfast. How can Thelma scold such unbridled enthusiasm? She can't. She hugs her pet and the story concludes with him thumping his tail, "Wham! Wham! Wham! Wham!" Large, boldface type and colorful illustrations fill the pages and reinforce the chaos the canine creates. Nash's pictures, done in watercolor, pencil, and ink, show a larger-than-life pooch rendered in a cartoon style that sends both character and action running off the pages and into readers' imaginations. This book cries out for call-and-response storytelling.--Susan M. Moore, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
