A gorgeous story of a little boy's first night with his puppy.  I'm not a dog person but the illustration of the puppy lying asleep on a pillow under the kitchen table, legs in the air with little belly exposed makes me very tempted to get a dog.  Be warned - reading this story will make your children want to own a puppy!
