PreS-Gr 2-A more descriptive title might be Boys, What Have You Done? After a forced trip to the barber shop, two boys decide to give their lovable shaggy dog a shampoo and brushing. When a handsomely groomed French poodle strolls by, they agree that a haircut would be even better and ready the razor. Of course, the canine tries to get away. Soon he has the razor in his mouth and the chase begins in earnest. Alas, at the sight of the coiffed Wendle, the poodle rolls on the ground in laughter. What's poor Wendle to do but shave himself completely. Anderson's bright, action-filled watercolors fill each page. Some of the illustrations run right off the page, indicating the speed of the chase. However, the bland text adds little to the book. Furthermore, the pictures of the pooch with patches of fur will make any animal lover grimace. On the cover, Wendle looks like a mischievous shaggy dog ready to play. Pink and bald, he looks cold, stubbly, and lonely. What about the boys? Do they get away with this mischief? What about the cat who has a patch of fur missing? Pass on this title and reread Anderson's Time for Bed, the Babysitter Said (Houghton, 1987).-Mary Ann Bursk, Bucks County Free Library, Levittown, PA
