About the Author:

Kevin O’Malley is the co-author and illustrator of the popular Miss Malarkey series, as well as the author and illustrator of the state award champ Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude and the New York Times bestseller Gimme Cracked Corn and I Will Share. The perfect dog for Kevin is one he can create on the page, rather than one he needs to paper train in his house (but don’t tell his dog Roxie that). He lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with his wife and two sons. You can follow him on Facebook or visit him at booksbyomalley.com.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—A little girl is finally allowed to get a pet, and she knows just what qualities to look for: "The perfect dog should be big... bigger...biggest! Maybe not this big." Digital illustrations in bright colors depict three different large—and one very large—breeds. So begins a playful romp through the traits a perfect dog should possess. Frequent repetition of superlatives is featured throughout, illustrated by comparisons of the pups' hair, running speed, and general fanciness. Humorous, cartoonlike illustrations provide dog enthusiasts plenty of breeds to inspect, and demonstrate what happens when a dog is "too much": the too snuggly hound squashes the little girl into a chair as he tries to lie on top of her. Ultimately, the protagonist discovers that there is no perfect pooch recipe, but the end result still sees girl and pet happily united. While no new ground is tread here, animal lovers will certainly enjoy examining a variety of canine companions (the endpapers alone feature dozens of doggie faces), and the simple text plus bold illustrations make this an option for reading aloud. VERDICT A superlative choice where animal books are popular or needed.—Kelsey Johnson-Kaiser, La Crosse Public Library, WI
