The family poodle protests at first when the master and mistress bring home a new "dog" to share the household--an inferior breed with no tail and little hair known as Baby.

Review:

From the beloved author of the Newbery Medal-winning title A Wrinkle in Time comes a charming story for younger readers, especially those with a new sibling. Touche L'Engle-Franklin, the very talented, sophisticated, and articulate poodle of the house, is shocked and dismayed when her master and mistress bring home another dog, especially such an odd-looking one. This interloper has no fur to speak of, no tail, and--horror of horrors--it does its business inside the house, in something called a diaper. Touche doesn't know what to make of this strange turn of events--after all, as she says, "This was a great waste of money. Dogs are expensive to feed and clothe, and one dog is enough for any family. I fail to see why I did not satisfy all requirements." Gradually, though, although she still considers the addition to the family an inferior breed, Touche begins to warm to "Jo-dog," and ultimately determines that "in every home there should be at least two dogs!"

Funny, touching, and original, this oversize picture book is just the ticket for disgruntled siblings. Precocious pooch Touche expresses her feelings toward the new baby in the household in a way that any child can relate to and every adult will recognize, and Christine Davenier's watercolor-and-ink illustrations have the nostalgic feel of Ludwig Bemelmans's Madeline books. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
