PreSchool-Grade 2-When Spike, a charming black-and-white dog, takes his first trip to the city, he stays close to his owner, Shannon, not at all sure he likes it there. He howls when someone steps on his tail in the elevator, steps in gum, and is snubbed by a dog sporting a Mohawk haircut and spiked collar. Then he catches a Frisbee in the park and meets friendly dogs that introduce him to different aspects of city life. After a brief episode in which he thinks he is lost, the pup finds Shannon and covers her with doggie kisses. The lively, engaging cartoonlike illustrations perfectly capture Spike's emotions, and observant readers and listeners will discover that Shannon is almost always nearby. The art and narrative flow neatly from one page to the next. Pair this humorous book with Debra and Sal Barracca's The Adventures of Taxi Dog (Dial, 1990) for a storytime that will appeal to both city and country dog lovers.
