Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Tiny is a lovable dog that is anything but diminutive. The oversized canine and his owner venture outside to frolic in the snow. They have a snowball fight, go sledding, and Tiny hides from the boy. Even though readers can easily spot the gigantic dog's nose, eyes, or head in the illustrations, the child is unaware of his whereabouts. One line of text per page and limited repetitive vocabulary makes this a solid choice for very early readers. The double-spread watercolor artwork is bright and appealing. Fans of the earlier "Tiny" books will welcome this new story about the big brown dog, but it also stands quite well on its own.-Olga R. Kuharets, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, NC Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Meister and Davis team up for their fourth beginning easy reader about Tiny, a gigantic golden dog who is anything but tiny. In fact, he is so tall that his floppy ears graze the tops of doorways. The simple, first-person story is narrated by the boy who owns Tiny, with just one or two sentences per page ("This is Tiny. He is my dog.") and plenty of full-color illustrations to move the action along. The winter-themed plot shows Tiny and the narrator dressing in warm winter clothes and then playing outside in the snow till Tiny chases a snowball too far. The narrator searches for his dog (who is always glimpsed by the reader somewhere in the illustrations), mistaking him for a snow monster when he finally reappears. They go home; they drink hot chocolate; they throw their wet clothes on the floor-just a boy and his six-foot-tall dog on an average day. This simple, satisfying story has a predictable plot, controlled vocabulary, and lots of repetition to help new readers feel successful. Can a springtime adventure for Tiny be far behind? (Easy reader. 4-7)
