KIRKUS REVIEW

 The lazy old red dog who never leaves his couch but has learned to make it ``VAROOM'' wherever he wants to go (most recently in Amos Ahoy!, 1990) is off on another ludicrous expedition with the accommodating Mr. and Mrs. Bobson. Tying his huge yellow sofa atop their car and packing an extra tent just for him, they set out. At first, trees are a problem, but Amos learns to maneuver in time to confront a surprised skunk and to chase a marauding bear, each after a string of hot dogs Amos has other plans for. A silly premise, but the resulting adventures continue to be engaging--especially as elaborated in Schneider's cartoon-style art, where Amos's relaxed, totally guileless interest in his own comfort has its own charm. (Picture book. 4- 8)
