While children love reading fantastic stories of dragons oraliens or dinosaurs, that doesn't mean they don't also enjoy readingbooks featuring kids just like them.
Or, in the case of the popular Arthur books, aardvarks just like them. Arthur's New Puppy is the eighteenth book in the best-selling series. It follows the misadventures of the lovable aardvark as he attempts to housebreak his bouncy puppy Pal.
Children seem to identify with Arthur as he struggles with everyday problems with the help of his loving parents (and no help from his pesky little sister, D.W.) and friends.
If you have an Arthur fan in the house, or if you have a new puppy in the house, you'll want to check out this book.

[...]. It is a good book for kids because it helps kids read. It is funny. Arthur gets a new puppy because his mother said he could. Arthur had to give five dollars for the puppy. Arthur was happy to have a puppy. He had been watching a puppy that gave birth to a litter of new puppies and Author got to keep one. I think everyone would enjoy this story, especially if you like puppies!

Arthur's New Puppy (An Arthur Adventure) June 11 2009
By Anna M. Ligtenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
ISBN 0316114537 - Arthur, as a TV character, is a long ago favorite. No one here watches anymore, leaving me no excuse to plunk down and watch along. For that reason alone, I like Arthur books. Add in the fact that kids like Arthur and that entices them to read... and I like Arthur a lot more!

Arthur has gotten a new puppy. He's named him Pal and is determined to train him to be a good, obedient dog. D.W. spends most of the book scoffing at the idea and gently mocking her brother's hopes. Because Pal is afraid of being alone in the garage, he is allowed to spend a couple nights in the house, as long as Arthur remembers to close the pet gate. Of course, Arthur forgets and Pal proves to be a real terror, ripping apart the kitchen and living room and peeing everywhere. Not only that, he runs whenever he sees his leash! Arthur's friends tell him stories of other dogs who have been sent away because they were too much trouble, sending Arthur into a flurry of training activity. Will he get Pal trained before it's too late? Or will he come home from school one day to find that his pal is gone?

Author and illustrator Marc Brown is fantastic, as usual, but this is one case that I'm not totally pleased. Portions of the story are told only in the illustrations, which I find a negative because I think the images should complement the text, not replace it. The story, however, is one that all little pet-desiring children ought to enjoy and their parents will like taking advantage of the chance to explain how much work a puppy can be before the family considers getting one. The relationship between D.W. and Arthur is perfection: they don't get along 100% of the time, but they're never really mean to one another.

Check out more Arthur Adventures, among them, Arthur's Birthday, Arthur's April Fool (Arthur Adventure Series) and Arthur's Eyes: An Arthur Adventure (Arthur Adventure Series).

A Puppy's Training Feb. 22 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I liked this book because it has lots of laughs. The story is about a new puppy who really needs trained, but in the end he's well trained.If you like stories like these then read Arthur's New Puppy.It's a tail wagging story.
