The Outside Dog

by Charlotte Pomerantz
Illustrated by Jennifer Plecas

Published by HarperCollins, 1993
64 pages
ISBN: 0-06-024783-5

Ages 4-7

Marisol wants a dog, but grandfather says no. "They have fleas and ticks and who knows what." But when a skinny brown dog with perky ears and a bright nose wanders into their yard, she is quick to point out that this dog has no fleas. It's only a matter of time before she's talked grandfather into feeding the dog, then letting her buy him a collar, and, of course, she has to give him a name. This beginning reader set in Puerto Rico integrates simple Spanish words with easy text as it tells the story of a little girl, her soft-hearted grandfather and a little brown dog named Pancho. (An I Can Read Book) CCBC categories: Easy Fiction; Picture Books.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
