Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
The palace is a flurry of activity preparing for cousin Jackson's birthday gala. The palace puppies, Sunny, the goldendoodle, and Rex, the beagle, are more than willing to help Princess Annie and Prince James prepare for the event. Of course the dogs have an ulterior motive—they want to taste the magnificent multi-layered birthday cake. The puppies sneak furtively around the palace and grounds, and watch (from various hiding places) as a sullen Jackson tears down the party decorations, stomps out of the bowling alley when he fails hit a single pin, and in a snit of anger tries to knock a frog from a lily pad. The puppies alert Annie and James to the disaster in the ballroom and repairs are made in time for Jackson's arrival. Presents are unwrapped, "Happy Birthday" is sung and Jackson finally seems to be enjoying himself only when Sunny and Rex upend the cake, splattering it all over the birthday boy. There seem to be little point to this silly story other than to provide a vehicle for young chapter book readers to practice their skill. Readers will have little sympathy for the spoiled Jackson and his temper tantrums are uncalled for. The premise is that he feels he has no friends, but this makes little sense when such a huge party with all these friends is planned to mark his birthday. The palace setting is a mere gimmick to make the story appear special. The slapstick action and puppy involvement are static and flat in book format, but might make a better Disney cartoon. Unremarkable drawings help break up the text and provide visual definition for the reader. This is the first in the "Puppy Palace" series, and one can only hope that the future titles improve Reviewer: Beverley Fahey

    Good for little kids, cause books w/ morals aren't always as exciting. Cute book, though.
