Reluctantly, Widget takes on his new role. The puppy starts getting into everything! From eating the girls' food to drooling on everyone's beds, this pup proves to be a challenge.
Widget is run ragged by this mystery guest. He accidentally falls asleep and loses track of the puppy. Will he be able to find the precocious pup before Mrs. Diggs returns?
I really liked this story. Widget's character is lovable as well as funny. McFarland does a wonderful job of describing the actions of a puppy. I felt tired right along with Widget.
Jim McFarland's illustrations are vibrant and fun. Children will delight in his depictions of animals at play, especially the puppy! The expressions on the cats' faces are hilarious.
This is a wonderful read for children ages 3-6. I think that this book would also be a great gift for those who are considering adopting a puppy.
