Bruce Whatley is one of Australia's most highly regarded and talented authors and illustrators for children, both here and internationally. Since 1992 Bruce has written and/or illustrated over 70 picture books. In 2002 he paired with author Jackie French and illustrated DIARY OF A WOMBAT, which was the start of an extraordinary creative collaboration.
PreSchool-Grade 3?This book requires readers' understanding and acceptance of the premise that pets rule the home. Of course, it's easier to believe when that pet happens to be an imposing white bull terrier with a sympathetic underbite and bi-colored, beseechingly human eyes. Whatley's realistic colored-pencil drawings of Skitty's antics will have youngsters giggling even if they don't own a pooch. The expressive illustrations, all of which provide a dog's-eye view, are delightfully absurd (and just barely exaggerated). It's hard not to smile at the ceaseless cajoling of this food vacuum cleaner. The "Mum" and "biscuit with tea" and, possibly, the baby's attire are the only giveaways that this is an Australian publication. That Magnetic Dog does for bulldogs what Livingston Taylor and Ted Rand's sympathetic Can I Be Good? (Harcourt, 1993) did for golden retrievers.?John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX
