Publisher: Dutton

A frisky pup creates havoc—unnoticed, evidently, by his adored human family—in this companion to Slippers at Home (ISBN: 0-525-47138-3). Restless, Slippers goes out into the garden to “help” Mommy with some pulling and digging, samples milk and cereal left unattended in the kitchen, then finds and chews on a sneaker, a cap and one of Daddy’s work gloves—all of which leaves him ready to nap just as Mommy and little Edward are getting ready for a walk. Young readers will enjoy this dog’s-eye view of the world, as presented in Clements’s brief, simply phrased text and Bynum’s floor-level scenes of a contented-looking, snub-nosed puppy. (Picture book. 6-8)
