Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Beginning readers will delight in these stories about an adorable white-and-black puppy. In Pizza, Joan and Bob prepare for a party and welcome guests who bring more delicacies, but Bob gives Sam dog food-"YUCK!" After hearing that "Cake is not for puppies.-Cookies are not for puppies.-Pie is not for puppies," the canine seizes the opportunity to devour an unattended pizza, "YUM!" In Monster, Sam watches TV while her owners are out. When a "big green monster" leaves the screen, Sam decides it is hiding in the house. She searches for it and tears apart a large green bag in the kitchen closet, scattering cookies, cake, and pizza bits all over the floor. Although Joan and Bob are dismayed at the mess, Sam is proud, for she "chased the big green monster away." Children demystifying life and language will surely identify with the pup's antics. Sarrazin's pastel illustrations provide contextual picture clues as they render the animal fluffy and cuddly, in a household of rich, warm colors and an expressive couple. Sam will be quite at home with the likes of Biscuit and Mudge.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Booklist
The basic, repetitive test is filled with action, noise, and enough suspense and silliness to engage new readers, and large images in big-eyed, sly Sam will help maintain interest.
