Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is springtime on the farm and many of the animals are giving birth to babies. There are new chicks, a little lamb, piglets, and a new foal. Pup is delighted and wants to play, but the mothers say their babies are too young and shoo him away. Downtrodden and sad, Pup heads to the woods where he and Hound find an egg. They try taking it to mother duck, but it is not hers. The same answer awaits them when they take the egg to the hen house. Then the egg rolls down a hill and takes flight. What a sight. The animals had seen flying birds but never an egg. Amazingly, it lands in some hay and when it hatches, it is Pup's turn to say—the baby is too young and you will have to wait to play. The illustrations are as much fun as the text. New readers should enjoy this early reader and will get plenty of help in decoding the text by looking at the illustrations. A level 1 book in the "Kids Can Read" series.
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1
In Catch a Thief , the two friends suspect Cat of breaking into their piggy bank and, later, of looting the farmer's jewelry box. Pup and Hound trail her all day to gather evidence, but, to their surprise, she is the one who finds the real thief. In Hatch an Egg , Pup finds an egg in the grass and tries to return it to Duck and then to Mother Hen. Both mothers deny ownership, and when the egg eventually hatches, it turns out to be a baby turtle-a new friend for Pup and Hound. Both books have appealing characters and all of the requisites for a successful beginning reader. Plenty of white space, lots of visual clues, and large bold print with a minimum of words on each page are all evident, but these books rise above the average with lively, interesting story lines, a few dashes of suspense, and satisfying conclusions. The simple vocabulary is sprinkled with occasional more challenging words ("hangdog," "disaster," "cufflinks"). Bouncy rhymes add to the fun, and the gentle humor provides some subtle life lessons. Both books are perfect choices for the youngest beginning readers.
