Children's LiteratureEveryone goes to Pike Place Market to see what makes Seattle, Seattle. Losi captures the spirit of the market with its many stalls of fresh fruit and flowers and its multi-tiers of funky shops in this light-hearted tale of look-alike dogs. One dog is from a houseboat, the other from a penthouse, so their treats are vastly different: one likes smoked mussels, the other, old shoes. As fish are flying and people are watching, the dogs get switched accidentally. Their owners drag Salt and Pepper to their "favorite" shops, but the dogs long to return to their real homes. Amy Meissner's detailed illustrations bring to life the lively ambience of the famous market, complete with its bronze pig and Magic Shop and jars with free samples of honey. 2004, WestWinds Press, Ages 4 up.
