Dog’s First Baby

Quirk. Oct. 2021. 28p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781683692799.
Baby-Toddler–Dog isn’t sure whether the new critter in the house is another canine or something else. It doesn’t smell like a dog or have a tail. Its front legs are different from its back legs. But the little one sleeps and stretches and howls and plays like a dog. No matter what it is, they are friends.
VERDICT Darling, bold collages and minimal text present the arrival of a new baby from the family dog’s perspective, with enough wry humor to make even adult readers smile.
