reS-Gr 2-The determined, bright, and adorable West Highland terrier is back as he welcomes new neighbors and a new language. McDuff's strong-willed nature places him in obedience school, where he has the potential to earn a blue ribbon at graduation. While the dog finds his family too busy to practice, he listens attentively to the routines of his Scottie friend Marie-Antoinette and her French owners; to his family's surprise, he has learned the commands in another language. The French phrases may prove difficult for the pup's youngest fans, but the endearing illustrations of canine faces and exuberant paws in action transcend any additional need for explanation. Jeffers's art perfectly complements Wells's simple text and captures an earlier era, seemingly the '30s, with perspectives that emphasize the dogs that play an important role in their owners' lives. A short illustrated glossary and pronunciation guide to the obedience commands are included.

Ages 2-5. The powerhouse team of Wells and Jeffers reunite for their fifth McDuff collaboration, packing plenty of sweetness and humor into a simple dog story. Jeffers' illustrations catch the look of a 1940s English village that suits the comfortable feel of the tale. Terrier McDuff meets his new neighbor, a French terrier named Marie Antoinette, who responds "Ouf" to McDuff's "Woof." After McDuff acts up at the new neighbors' house, he's sent to obedience school, and Marie Antoinette goes along. Children will be so engaged by the dogs' antics that they'll hardly notice the many French words they're picking up. A glossary of French terms is appended. Connie Fletcher
