Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When Tiny was a pup, he was so small that he could fit in a pocket—but Tiny quickly grew larger. Now Tiny is so big that he can outrun his master and no longer fits in his old doghouse. But no matter, he and the boy are still best friends. The pictures and limited text in this early reader are perfect for kids just beginning to read. Puffin "Easy-To-Read" Level 1 with a description of the reading levels on the inside cover and back cover. 1999, Puffin, and $3.99. Ages 4 to 7. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Library Journal
K-Gr 1-A dog was once small enough to fit in a shoe-but he soon becomes enormous. No matter-child and pup were best friends when Tiny was tiny, and they still are. The story is told through simple, repetitive vocabulary that's just right for very beginning readers. Davis's whimsical cartoon illustrations set on stark white backgrounds add humorous touches as the dog becomes gigantic. The few words per double-page spread will appeal to children intimidated by a lengthy text. The combination of endearing pup and bespectacled, astonished-looking child result in a winning choice for new readers.-Lori Haas Weaver, Montmorency County Public Libraries, Atlanta, MI Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Meister (Tiny's Bath, p. 303) records the continuing adventures of the misnamed Tiny, and the results will captivate new readers. The narrator, Tiny's owner, chronicles the development of his beloved pet, comparing the period when Tiny was a relatively small puppy to his current massive, fully grown state. Many humorous details emerge as Tiny masters new skills, including running fast and learning tricks. Meister's compact sentences and the manageable vocabulary ease the transition to reading alone; the recurrence of key words aids in recognition and builds confidence, while the antics of Tiny will keep interest at a peak. Davis's brightly colored, ebullient illustrations, with their comic-book energy, expertly convey the camaraderie between owner and dog. (Picture book. 4-7)
