About this title


Phil, a bowlegged warm-weather mutt, runs away from his owner, Bob, to avoid his weekly bath, but when the sun starts to go down, Phil realizes that he does not know how to get back to Bob.

From Booklist:

Ages 5^-7. The cajoling face of a floppy-eared, brown-eyed mutt on the dust jacket will undoubtedly draw kids to this story about a lost dog. Phil hates being bathed, and he tries to evade the suds bucket and a hose any way he can. One day, he escapes the dreaded bath by leaping through an open window, only to discover that his flying feet have taken him so far from home he can't find his way back. The story is a little uneven, with the situation swinging widely from Phil's humorous antics to the dramatic question of whether he'll survive uncaring humans, squealing traffic, and an empty tummy. The illustrations are uneven as well, with some looking almost unfinished. Even so, they are the real joy of the book, sometimes action packed or broadly comical (as when Phil's ears flap wildly at hearing Bob's voice on an answering machine) and sometimes almost Norman Rockwell^-like in their precise characterizations and zesty details. Stephanie Zvirin
