Erin and Matthew Sullivan didn’t know whether they had adopted a new puppy or The Green-eyed Monster In A Maltese Suit. Written as a children’s picture book, this story and its illustrations is an entertaining piece for reading aloud.
Erin and Matthew were not interested in a froufrou dog. They were in searchof a charming and playful companion that would be excited to see them when they came home after a long day at work. Carter had radiant green eyes, a brown nose, a pink belly, and a fluffy white corkscrew tail, more likea pig’s tail than a dog’s. He was not happy about leaving his siblings to fly half way across the country to a new home. He terrorized this young, newly married couple until they were at their wit’s end. Desperate to save their home and relationship, Erin and Matthew exhausted a long list of everything they could think of to make Carter feel welcome in their home.
