Overview

The best friends from Shawn and Keeper and the Birthday Party are back in another Easy Reader misadventure.

Shawn and his dog, Keeper, do everything together, even show-and-tell in the classroom! Keeper performs each trick perfectly at home—but not so perfectly at school. He scratches his ear when he should sit and trips the teacher when he tries to fetch. Kids will enjoy Keeper's topsy-turvy show-and-tell!

Shawn and his dog Keeper remain the best of friends even after the show-and-tell where Keeper trips the teacher, spills glue, knocks over the fish tank, and does not perform a single trick.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Shawn has decided to take his dog Keeper to school on Friday for show-and-tell. All week long they work on tricks, but on Friday when Shawn gives the commands, Keeper doesn't seem to understand. He races around the classroom and creates quite a mess, but Shawn still feels that his dog Keeper is the very best. Engaging pictures and a simple text make this a good choice for kids just beginning to read. A "Dutton Easy Reader." 2000, Dutton, $13.99. Ages 4 to 6. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-This title has the appeal of Cynthia Rylant's "Henry and Mudge" series (S & S), but with less text for those just starting to read independently. Shawn trains his dog to perform tricks for show-and-tell at school. After a week of practicing at home, the big day arrives, and Keeper surprises everyone by wreaking havoc in the classroom. Luckily for the uncooperative pup, Shawn knows the importance of friendship and unconditional love. The repetitive text and visual clues will help new readers gain confidence in their skills. The lively illustrations add greatly to the book's charm and are filled with humor. The expressions on the faces of both the humans and pets are appealing as well.-Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Kirkus Reviews
A lively easy reader in which the author takes a page from Letterman's stupid pet tricks and the illustrator captures the hilarity. Shawn has four whole days before show-and-tell to teach a few tricks to Keeper, his red retriever-like shaggy dog. Why not give it a try? After all, the two are the best of friends, the kind of friends who "walked together and talked together" and "growled together and howled together." Training ensues, with Shawn growing from hesitant to well nigh dictatorial and Keeper's confusion melting into a satisfied grin in Williams-Andriani's squiggly inset illustrations. Shawn always says, "Good boy!" and gives Keeper cookies. Then comes Friday, pet-trick presentation day. After "Leah sang to her mouse" (not exactly a pet trick), and some other performances, it's Shawn and Keeper's turn, and the dog blows it, forgetting everything except "Fetch!" His happy chase after the spotted ball decimates the classroom in a series of vignettes that culminate in full-scale disaster. The background damage is depicted in gentle pastels, enabling the reader's attention to remain on Shawn and Keeper. Careful observation reveals, however, that the fish in the upset tank are horrified, as is the mouse. It's obvious Shawn must change his training tactics, and he does. " ‘Bad boy!' " he says. " ‘But I still love you.' And he gave Keeper a cookie." After all, "they were the best of friends." (Fiction. 4-7)
