THE PUPPY CALLED SPINACH by Margaret & Mary Baker



Publisher: Dodd, Mead

He didn't like his name, so he was always looking for trouble, and then running away. But finally, he acquired a good home, and thought he was set for life. Then this business of the name cropped up again -- and he spoiled some flower beds -- and chewed up some things that should not have been chewed -- and had a row with the family cat -- and ran away again. That was even worse, and the stray dogs brought him home where he found that his name had been changed after all and life was rosy again. The Bakers have a keen sense of story -- and the silhouette pictures are delightful.
