Barkis, an adorable cocker spaniel puppy and surprise birthday present from Uncle Jimmy is the icing on 9-year-old James' cake. "He's snoofing in my neck like anything. Ooh! He tickles!" Barkis eagerly joins James' family, which includes his sister Nell Jean and her kitten, Edward. When sibling rivalry reaches a crescendo over which beloved pet "belongs" to which child, a mishap occurs. But everyone rallies to make amends and both children learn a valuable lesson about sharing and caring.

Originally published in 1938, Barkis was author/illustrator Clare Turlay Newberry's first Caldecott Honor Book. Her endearing illustrations of baby animals and children will charm readers with every turn of the page. Children will be unable to resist the delightful images and may close the book having learned a lesson themselves.
