We meet Puggy, a happy little dog who loves to ply with other animals, tell stories and is liked by everyone. But Puggy has a mood swing and envies the dog next door – King – whose bark is like a song and who looks like a prince on a throne. Puggy sees all the material things King has and becomes envious. All of these thoughts come when he learns that is doghouse is to be painting and he must go elsewhere until the project is finished. And guess where he is to go during the redecorating of his house? Next door – where King lives! At first Pubby is excited until he actually lives next door and discovers that all the things he envied are not as wonderful as his own loving home. When he returns to his own home his doghouse is super, and when he invites King over to see his new home, King is impressed but soon longs for his own home and the two dogs are now sharing friends, each happy with their own palace in the world!
Lea’s writing is rich in rhyme and told with such a flow that children will want to read this little lesson/story again and again. Very strong first book for Lea Kirshenberg! Grady Harp, March 16
