PreSchool-Grade 2-- That irresistible, irrepressible basset hound is back again solving the problems of the neighborhood. Mickey is tired of his old ball, Buddy is bored with frisbee. Claude totes the ball to Buddy and the frisbee to Mickey and, behold, both boys are happy. As the hound makes his rounds, he finds that each of the human neighbors is in a dither about something. The wise dog knows just what to do. The result of his day's activities is a neighborhood picnic where everyone has a good time, especially Claude. Gackenbach's cartoon characters and warm, gentle stories never lose their appeal, delivering messages of love and kindness. And this goodwill ambassador never says a word, only raises his eyebrows or lifts his ears. Carry on, Claude. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
