*Bow-Wow is a handsome dog whose peach-colored coat really pops off the page
*The interior covers sport a pattern so bold and snazzy I'd be proud to wear it on a tie or pair of boxers
*I missed it the first few times through, but the cat eyes glowing under the couch are pretty neat
*Except for the "happy" page, Bow-Wow's facial expression remains too determined or sad for my taste
*We all know that cats are smarter than dogs, but how did this feline close the window while running the other way
*The curtains are mysteriously missing in every frame but one
ONE DAD'S OPINION
Here we have another book that seems to do more with less. The theme is not original; nor are the opposites being compared. But the way they are depicted, both conceptually and visually, gets the job done. It's pretty easy to assign a rating to this one since you would never EVER want to pay for it, but you'd be happy to have it on hand for an abridged storytime.
