I grew up reading about Harry the Dirty Dog and I quite liked him, so when I saw a recent reprint of the story collection, I just had to buy it. This was before I had a son or was expecting one. When I re-read the stories many years after my childhood, I still smiled at No Roses for Harry. How I could relate to the gift of an unattractive sweater. Harry's solution is rather ingenious. The illustrations are darling, in a style that would be called "retro" now, but actually was current when originally employed. I guess that would make them "vintage". There is something to be said for a limited color palette. The limitation forces the illustrator to make every line and shading count, or the whole picture would feel flat. It's probably a great artistic exercise.  Anyway, Harry the Dirty Dog is still a gem. Let's see how many generations can enjoy it.

Harry the Dirty Dog had lots of different stories in it. My favorite story was about Harry at the beach. Harry got lost and couldn't find his family because everyone had the same color beach umbrellas.
