The Blegvads celebrated the cat's meow in Mittens for Kittens (1974), and now the dog will have his day. . . in 21 rhymes from Mother Goose, of which only the one about Mother Hubbard is longer than a few brisk lines. Little Bingo, Poor Dog Bright, the bumbling Blue Bell, Little Tommy Tinker's dog and even his Highness' dog at Kew won't chase. . . Kittens up a tree, but with Erik Blegvad's trim, lovingly precise views of assorted dogs and old time Englishmen, they make a snappy, trusty complement.
