Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Pinkerton is an extra large Great Dane puppy who is lonely and lacks any other animal companions. Pinkerton's owner debates about what type of animal she should buy to become Pinkerton's friend. She looks at goldfish and birds but decides on a kitten named Rose because a lady at the International Pet Show says that Great Dane puppies and kittens can become good friends. However, Pinkerton gets annoyed when his "Rose" takes over his bed and eats his food. To find out why Pinkerton and Rose have not become good friends, Pinkerton, Rose, and their owners head back to the International Pet Show, in search of the lady who recommended Rose to the family. At the fair, Rose causes chaos at the poodle march, and Pinkerton gets into the cat exhibit. The two animals' continuous bad behavior disrupts the entire pet show. Read to find out how all this disaster turns into a great day and why Pinkerton and Rose are now considered heroes. The title of this book leads the reader to believe that Pinkerton will receive a flower. However, with a play on words, Kellogg incorporates a different type of "Rose" for Pinkerton. The illustrations tell much of the story. Without them, we would not understand all of Pinkerton's problems with Rose, nor could we see how much chaos occurs at the fair. The silliness of the story creates an entertaining and humorous must-read for all children. 2002 (orig. 1981), Dial books for Young Readers,
