Kirkus Reviews
A petite, pampered pooch learns how to run with the big dogs in this funny early reader that will resonate with any kids who might long for a less protected, more exciting environment. Twinky, a diminutive Boston terrier, is completely coddled by his overprotective owner. She sends him to charm school and carries him in her purse. She dresses him in sweaters and "made him go potty on a wee-wee pad. That was the worst!" Klimo cleverly uses repetition of all these pampered-pet features as a humorous device that also reinforces those terms for new readers. When Twinky escapes to the dog park to play with larger, more experienced dogs, he learns "big-dog moves" like "struts and growls and snarls and scowls." This comes in handy later that night, when Twinky must defend his home from a burglar. Twinky's heroics are recounted in a newspaper story, and he is allowed to act like a normal dog with his new pals. Snappy, computer-generated illustrations provide a contemporary flair for Twinky's adventures, with stylized, angular shapes for the dogs and a muted palette of sophisticated shades. Kids will cheer as the little guy breaks free from mom's apron strings--go, Twinky! (Early reader. 5-8)
