Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Derek likes chasing the cat and gnawing on slippers. He likes burying his brother's toys and shaking himself dry after his bath. Derek wants to be a dog forever. But when school starts, Derek discovers that little boy activities can be fun, too. "Whimsical watercolor cartoons, funny and bright, adorn this doggie-romp. Silly fun."-- School Library Journal <br>

Derek thinks he'd prefer to be a dog until he starts school and finds out it's even more fun being a boy.

Horn Book Review

When he is little, Derek wants to be a dog and spends all his time behaving like one. Once he starts school, however, he discovers friends and lots of fun people-activities. He decides to be a boy after all -- most of the time. Demarest's whimsical ink and watercolor illustrations bring Charlton's simple text to life. From HORN BOOK 1996, (c) Copyright 2010.
