KIRKUS REVIEW

The ABC's of puppy care have no relation to the order or incidence of letters in the alphabet, which makes this array of common sense tips somewhat fortuitous and illogical; alphabet books are passe to kids who are ready to care for a dog, which makes the format questionable altogether. Miss. Weil's drawings are more appealing than precise and a few are simply silly (Fido in a four-poster, in an apron, hitched to a wagon); so are the X, Y, Z names (Xerox, Yummy, Zigzag). The air of encouraging consideration and consistency among young children is misplaced among the letters, lost in some of the anthropomorphic illustrations.
