WATSON: The Smartest Dog in the U.S.A.

Email this review


A pet whose pastime is reading. Watson lives each part; he gets so wrapped up in the story of a mean witch who imprisons a royal cowboy (the princess' favorite) that he bursts into ears and can't be consoled. ""It's best to finish whatever you begin,"" advises the father of the family; that story within a story comes out all right and Watson comes out dancing. Patterns are deployed ingeniously in the illustrations and ingenuity is the chief attribute altogether pawky amusement for the smart set.
