Horn Book Review

Pepe is a lonely dog until he finds a hat and becomes el perro en sombrero, a famous movie star. Disaster strikes when a jealous cat steals his sombrero, but it helps Pepe realize there is something better than fame. Henry's illustrations are lively, funny, and filled with action, and the alternation between the English and Spanish translations feels natural. (c) Copyright 2015.
