KIRKUS REVIEW

A great dane makes a new and appealing dog hero for a young child's book. The pictures by Dorothy Allyn Deets are positively irresistible, full of life, color and real dog. I think it is unfortunate that the publishers have labelled this a ""nursery book"" -- imprinted conspicuously on the cover -- for its lively story and small blocks of print make it ideal for self-reading at six or seven. It can be read aloud to younger children, too, but why alienate older readers by such a label?
