About this title


After a young boy accidentally leaves his beloved stuff dog by a riverbank, the favorite toy, named Watt, is able to find a new home, in a tale illustrated by gentle, soothing paintings.

From School Library Journal:

PreS. Matt loves his stuffed dog, Watt, but when he begins to outgrow his toy, he accidentally leaves him by a river bank. When it starts to rain, Watt is swept downriver until he is rescued by Hattie, a little girl who dries him out and falls asleep with her waterdog snuggled safe in her arms. This reassuring story's otherwise gently flowing text is hindered by a plot device that seems forced: it is unlikely that a boy Matt's age, out playing with his friends by the river, would take a stuffed toy along. Illustrations appear to be rendered in soft oil pastels that reinforce the mood of the story. However, the stuffed dog is often more expressive and lifelike than the children. Matt appears somewhat posed and stiff as he begins to ride off on his bicycle. Hattie often has an innocuous greeting-card quality as she splashes in the water when Watt floats by. Other illustrations are more successfully executed as when Hattie is peering over the supper table at Watt. An additional purchase.?Susan M. Moore, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
