Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Two early beginning readers about a basset hound and his young friend. The illustrations are very detailed, yet they do not always support the texts. The inclusion of rhyming words (e.g., sound, ground, round, etc.) is useful, but such pairings as "bone/groan," "shoe/ewww!," and "stare/bear" are not wise choices. Fledgling readers need to see rhyming words that are part of a "word family." Overall, youngsters will be better off reading a nonsensical Dr. Seuss book.-Gina Powell, Hidenwood Elementary School, Newport News, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
