PreSchool-Grade 2. A countdown book that will be a winner at dog-themed storyhours. Ten dogs sit in a pet-shop window until one by one they are all chosen by people who bear a resemblance to them. The repetitive text?"10 dogs in the window for the whole wide world to see. Look, someone is coming...You're the perfect dog for me!"?will have listeners chanting along. The layout, which shows the pet-shop window on the right with the dog-free pedestrians approaching from the left makes for a guessing game that is not solved until the page is turned and the new companions are seen walking away while a new owner-to-be approaches. Among the dogs included are a dalmatian, a Scottie, a poodle, and sheepdog, although none are ever identified as such. The last dog in the window, a beagle, is taken home by a little boy and his family. The final illustration shows the pet-shop owner placing 10 cats in the now-empty windowfront. The full-page pictures, done in acrylic paint, are in perfect harmony with the text and give subtle clues that make the guessing game a bit of a challenge for very young readers.?Maura Bresnahan, Topsfield Town Library, MA
