From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K Amos, an old Irish setter who lives in a quiet home, spends many hours relaxing on an old couch while his owners are out. One day, while swatting a fly, he discovers that by touching one of the pillows on his couch he can ``drive'' it. Following his owners leads him on shopping trips and through rush hour trafficexciting adventures for an old dogand finally wins him an invitation to ride with them in the car. (Isn't this every dog's fantasy?) Amos' adventures are presented in large New Yorker -style cartoon pencil illustrations. Large red Amos and his tan couch and the owners' green sedan are easily spotted on each page. The format is appealing to the eye; the tongue-in-cheek story will provide entertainment for very young dog owners and a good bedtime story for the family canine, as well.
