Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Here is the book that introduced Carl, the babysitting Rottweiler, to his adoring fans. Readers will delight as Carl leads his infant mistress on a wordless romp through the house, causing chaos and destruction, but managing to restore order just before Mother returns home! Full color.

Horn Book Review

This sturdily bound compendium of six of the Carl stories is a little big for lap-reading but handsome in its own right. It's also valuable as a survey of Day's artistic development, moving from oils to watercolor but always displaying rich tones, plenty of warmth, and subtle humor. Neither the first book, Good Dog Carl, nor Carl's Christmas is included. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
