The latest in this popular series is in a larger format that generously accommodates an outdoor setting and a new character: a puppy who joins canine babysitter Carl and his small human charge on the merry-go-round, digging in a flower bed, sharing an ice cream, calling at the zoo, etc.; the original duo even poses for a painting club whose members represent them in several recognizable styles. The dogs are as charmingly true to life as ever, while the fantasy will beguile fans and worry a few literal-minded caregivers.
Move over, Mary Poppins, and make room for Carl . The illustrations are more dynamic and the goings on even more beguiling than in previous outings - (Publishers Weekly)
THIS BOOK IS SIGNED BY ALEXANDRA DAY & WITH A STAMP-PRINT OF THE REAL CARL'S PAW.
