As someone who has written a pet column for seven years, I felt pretty confident that I knew all the basics about dogs. For a layperson, that is. But "Dog Lover's Daily Companion," by Wendy Nan Rees and Kristen Hampshire, has a host of doggy details and trivia that had never even crossed my radar. Subtitled "365 Days of Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Living a Rich Life With Your Dog," this 315-page book, with playful pet portraits by "dogumentarian" Kendra Luck of Albany, will entertain and inform even the most savvy dog owner…With the approaching holidays, the "Dog Lover's Daily Companion" will make a welcome gift for those who already share their life with a dog as well as those who are considering the joys of canine companionship. --Eileen Mitchell, San Francisco Chronicle

The funny characters are lively and lovable, and the predictable plot is a perfect choice for the preschooler who isn't quite ready for complicated stories. Of course, the behavior of the monkeys is dangerous, but even the smallest children ought to know better than to copy the monkeys' actions -- if anything, it serves as a rather funny cautionary tale.
In the original, the monkeys are definitely eaten. In this version, not so much. (Also, this version cuts down some of my favorite lines from the original rhyme.) Because the monkeys aren't eaten, people who are worried about more sensitive children will probably be okay with this book :) Bright illustrations, bouncy classic rhyme, cute story. Gotta love it :)
