MY PUPPY by Mike Thaler


Email this review


With only ""one quarter, two dimes, two nickles, and eight pennies,"" ""I"" couldn't buy any of the pets at the pet shop and so settled for a dog leash instead. ""I began to pretend there was a puppy at the end of my leash""--and proved good enough at the game to win a ""special prize"" at the local dog show. The prize is a card that reads ""This coupon entitles the bearer to one puppy at the pet store,"" Fishman's black-line drawings, though no more substantial than the text, have a quirky look that brings out the snap in the story. No prize, but it might show.
