KIRKUS REVIEW

Stilt, a shaggy dog, bewilders his master, Fred, as she proceeds to grow to baffling proportions. When Stilt frolics with two police horses, and finds herself handcuffed and behind bars, Fred, in desperation, decides to move himself and his pet to a large ranch. Here, all goes well: Stilt is at home with animals her own size -- sheep, cows and horses -- until one day she nonchalantly delivers eleven puppies. This leaves little hope for the sanity of the ranch; but Fred doesn't care and Stilt, she doesn't care either. Polly Cameron, who in her two previous books, The Cat Who Thought He Was A Tiger and The Cat Who Couldn't Purr, created felines of distinction, brings to life here, by means of elegantly appealing illustrations and a simple text, the most suave shaggy dog story that ever grew and grew and grew.
