Gr. 2^-4. In looking for "the purrfect puppy," Calico the cat, previously seen in Counting on Calico (1995), shares her research with young readers. Across each colorful and realistically drawn double-page spread, a different dog breed is pictured--spaniels splashing in a wading pool, setters chasing pheasants, and huskies frolicking in snow; the canines are seen doing what characteristically pleases them. The brief and lighthearted yet informative text conveys such key facts about the dogs as their size, type of coat, and typical personality traits. This clever and effective introduction to dog breeds is delightful for browsers and serious dog hunters alike. Ellen Mandel
