LOBO by Gladys Yessayan Cretan


Email this review


I'm not little. . . Am I?"" Lobo says to himself after he's been chastised for barking like a big dog. While he's sulking, a runaway baby carriage approaches and stops close by; hearing (and seeing) the baby cry, Lobo sets up his own howl, which alerts the neighbors and makes him a hero. Promised a treat, Lobo patters into the house thinking ""I may be a little dog but I like a big treat."" Lobo is a cocky pooch with some funny, not quite fey lines and the winsome, not quite cutesy looks of a straighthaired poodle -- also the uncanine ability to understand conversations and determine the sex of a swaddled baby. Say an appealing if somewhat specious species.
