With a few snips of the scissors and some carefully placed stitches, Archie has made a coat for his pet. While out on a walk together, he is approached by a female dog wanting a dress for her pet. The pair become the talk of the town.
Archie's phone begins ringing off the hook. Everyone wants to wear his designs. Will Archie be able to keep up with all of the demands?
I thought this was a fun read. The story is nearly wordless and focuses on Gordon's whimsical illustrations. Children will love the cast of colorful canine characters.
I do struggle with the fact that the story doesn't seem to have a plot. The main character doesn't appear to face any obstacles. I am also greatly confused at the idea of a dog owning a dog as a pet. This made me wonder why some dogs get to obtain their freedom and walk around on two legs while others are forced to be a pet on all fours. I thought this to be the greatest disconnect with the book.
Overall, this is a fun read for children ages 3-6.
