THE DOGHOUSE by Jan Thomas

doghouseThe Doghouse is a simple picture book in which four animals lose a ball inside an ominous, fear-inspiring doghouse. As the mouse volunteers his friends to retrieve the ball, each one disappears into the doghouse, building fear and suspense. The resolution, however, is funny rather than scary. This book works best as a read-aloud, and would be good for ages 3 to 7. The large, cartoon-like illustrations are appealing and there are several humorous details. This book is a good addition for story-time collections. 36pp.
