About this title


Story about a Jack Russell dog who decides it is time to go find a job, but just what kind of job he should take is not yet determined. Brilliant color illustrations.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 A young dog named Jack Russell imagines himself in a variety of professions. He rejects each one and, at the end, goes back to being a puppy again. The sing-song rhythms of the text are pleasant and whimsical, but they don't have the concise phrasing that distinguishes the best poetry. Too often, words seem used as filler (Jack is " '. . .old enough now /to look for a job, /A trade or profession, let's see. . .' "). Also, occasional inverted phrases are used just to make a rhyme work, and they sound awkward and forced. The full-color paintings are well designed and quite lovely to look at. Ornately designed borders give them an old-fashioned, formal feeling. The blurb invites comparison with Nicola Bayley, but these pictures lack the glow and animation of Bayley's work; despite the proficiency, there's something cold and static about them. For humorous picture books about careers, try Robert Kraus' Owliver (Windmill, 1974) or Louis James Hates School (Houghton, 1978; o.p.) by Bill Morrison. Lauralyn Levesque, Pawtucket Pub. Lib., R.I.
