PreSchool-Grade 2–This story was originally published in 1954 in Humpty Dumpty's Magazinefor Little Children and in 1965 in book form. Brownie is an agreeable dog who is entertained by various members of the community, but he has no real home. In this sweet story of his escapades, readers learn how trusting he is and how appreciative of what little he has. Then, his days of carefree fun seem over, due to an encounter with the dogcatcher. But Brownie is rescued from a questionable fate by his three primary caregivers, who miss him and decide to share responsibility for him. The color illustrations depict old-fashioned neighborhoods and a lovable, lively pup. An appropriate choice for storytimes as well as for beginning readers.–Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA
