Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Tiny is not the least bit tiny—he is a very large dog. He and his friend are going to take a camping trip. They need to get everything ready—a flashlight, a tent, and food. Off they go looking for the perfect campsite. Once found, then the work of setting up the tent and other comforts begins. It is not too long a wait for nightfall when they can catch fireflies and build a campfire. One little problem is Tiny's size—he just cannot fit in the tent, and he puts a hole in it. They decide the hole is unimportant because now they can see the stars better. The final scene is slightly amusing, since the campers have not ventured far from home. My one quibble would be that such a young child would be allowed to build a campfire on his own, no matter where he may be camping. A Level 1 book in the "Viking Easy-To-Read" series.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Youngsters will be delighted with this story about an enormous dog and the small boy who owns him. The two plan a camping trip, pack some food, and head out to pitch their tent. After it is set up, the child builds a fire for cooking hot dogs (which sets a questionable safety example, to say the least). When it is time for bed, the not-so-tiny pooch attempts to join his friend in the tent, with disastrous results. But misadventures do not diminish the campers' enthusiasm. The illustrations make a significant contribution to the story. The silliness of the dog is made funnier by his exaggerated size. A little bluebird appears in most pictures, adding a reassuring light touch. Although Tiny and his human haul a red wagon full of supplies to their camping area, there are hints along the way that they are not traveling far, and the final page shows that they are in their own backyard. Meister is careful with her word choices, providing repetition and context clues for those that are more difficult. There are additional clues in the art, making this book an excellent choice for beginning readers.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
