Product Details

Praise

“Hartland’s quirky gouache world suits this eccentric readaloud well, with plenty of hidden background details and a city of walking lizards, birds, and cats and dogs. Rosie is a skinny poodle with well-defined fur texture whom viewers will enjoy seeing pose like a human, whether she’s sitting in a chair or riding her bike or poorly guarding a museum from raccoon thieves. It’s an entertaining story that plays with reality in unexpected ways, and viewers may also learn something about the real tradition of truffle dogs and pigs. Recipes for truffle chocolates and noodles with truffles are included at the end for kids with expensive tastes.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“The brisk narration and colorful gouache paintings have plenty of cheek—as befits the indomitable, improbable protagonist—and the pages fly by, propelled by characters who seem always to be in motion. Like truffles (both kinds), there’s plenty to savor.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“An original, somewhat zany story…illustrate[d] with gouache paintings that are freewheeling, buoyant, and energetic.”—Booklist
