School Library Journal Review

PreS-Youngsters who've had their silly pills will welcome back Mrs. McNosh for another round of slapstick humor. Her dog escapes from his leash during a walk through the park and, in rollicking rhyme, children read about her fruitless attempts to catch him. Fortunately, when Mrs. McNosh gives up the game, George takes himself home, goes in through the doggy door, and is waiting for his mistress when she returns. Westcott's cartoon artwork, done in cheerful, candy-colored pinks, yellows, and greens, uses every available space to draw out the story's laughs. Children will chuckle at the bug-eyed observers as Mrs. McNosh and her pup barrel through a lake, a baseball field, and even a wedding reception. George himself is an expressive hero, showing intensity, surprise, and sheer glee. With pictures to pore over, it's a perfect recipe for preschool fun.-Faith Brautigam, Gail Borden Public Library, Elgin, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
