Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
Wuffy is an exuberant puppy living in a household made up of Dad, Mom, Irene (a second grader), and his best friend Elizabeth the cat. Each of the short chapters is a moralistic tale of interchanges between Elizabeth and Wuffy. Humorously told, each chapter ends with the repeated refrain: "One cannot ruin a friendship because of a little silliness, right? One has to be mature. And Wuffy was very mature." One of Wuffy's shortcomings, according to Elizabeth, is his huge ego—he thinks he has the bushiest tail, the biggest eyes, and the longest ears "in the whole entire world." The "mature" part of the refrain quote may stimulate discussion as to whether or not all of Wuffy's actions and reactions are, indeed, "very mature" or not. The last chapter ends with "and Wuffy was getting to be very mature." The possibility of growth through experience and example is an important part of these tales. This is not an early reader as the amount of text (seventy pages) would challenge the younger end of the suggested range, but perhaps it will serve to stretch attention spans of the younger listeners. Such character building issues as forgiveness, compassion, cooperation, responsibility, and proper behavior are part and parcel of this title. Full page black-and-white line drawings accompany each chapter.

    How to Be a Vegetarian on a Meat Pie Diet

    He is the stellar candidate for the Canine Hall of Fame, the future Nobel Prize recipient, and the perfect reason to launch an overhaul of the Metropolitan Opera or to redecorate the Sistine Chapel - and all of the above is just one very mature puppy. But before he ascends to any of those lofty pedestals, Wuffy needs a lot of practice ... and his family, a lot of patience. He is never at a loss for ideas, and were it not for the cooling presence of his older friend the kitten Elizabeth, the entire household would be speaking Wuffanese in desperation. The story is so full of fun and the pictures are so lively that your child is guarranteed to love this book. You don't need to own a dog to love Wuffy.

    I adore this little puppy

    What a sweet joyful book! I am already a grandmother but I couldn¿t stop laughing. Wuffy is irresistibly charming puppy. I think this book will make me buy a puppy. But it is more than that. This book teaches our children to be warm-hearted, to appreciate family values, to love pets. The author did a tremendous job. The only one recommendation: Do not stop. Keep writing stories like this. Thank You, Margaret.

    Great read for kids of all ages

    Wuffy the Wonder Dog is a collection of short stories featuring Wuffy and his best friend Elizabeth. Elizabeth is a well-educated and sophisticated cat, and Wuffy never stops trying to impress her with his many talents. Wuffy always means well, but he gets into more scrapes than any dog I¿ve ever met. In one story, he is a scientist experimenting on chocolate. In another, he¿s a doctor who cures sick little girls better than chicken soup. Each story has another unique situation exploring the many facets of this adorable but somewhat arrogant little dog. This is a wonderful read-aloud book for all ages, or a read-alone book for elementary readers. The gorgeous illustrations compliment the well-written story. I can highly recommend this book to any and all.
