Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 1- In their latest adventure, Tiny, a barn-size dog, and his boy help Uncle John find his lost kittens. With a nose as big as a small boy's head, the pup is well suited for the job, and he does not disappoint. This easy reader uses simple text to tell a predictable, uncomplicated story that will appeal to children. Illustrations are cartoonlike and cheery, providing visual clues for the more difficult vocabulary ("hayloft," "horseshoe," "grasshopper"). Tiny dominates the spreads with his exaggerated proportions and is sure to appeal to kids' fascination with friendly giants. A perky bluebird provides a clever counterpoint to the colossal canine. Children will enjoy identifying the farm animals and searching the pictures for the missing felines.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME

Kirkus Reviews
The enormous and abundantly energetic Tiny, canine star of the team's When Tiny Was Tiny (1999) and other early readers, takes center stage in his first picture book. In the short and simple story, Tiny and his owner Eliot search the farm to help Uncle John find his cat and her kittens. Davis's illustrations are the draw here, rendering Uncle John as a comical adult version of Eliot; they even wear the same plaid shirt, blue overalls, straw hat and glasses. The adorable and inaptly named Tiny's large, sweet doggie face displays a wide range of reactions and emotions as he and Eliot tour the farm. The little blue bird from the early-reader series flaps his way into this format, too; he figures in every spread, and readers will no doubt enjoy trying to spot him. A good introduction to Tiny, this one might also inspire those readers ready to strike out on their own to try the other offerings featuring their new favorite pup. Sure to appeal to fans of that other big dog too. (Picture book. 3-5)
