Read full description of the books:
The cover is great, and the title, 'Ivan the Terrier' makes the deep down pun-loving part of myself giggle. (I think his name is up there with my favorite literary dog name - Nate the Great's pancake guzzling counterpart - 'Sludge'.) I think the art in 'Ivan' is a little wavery - some pages are better than others, but I think the idea's a lot of fun.
The narrator sets out to tell a familiar story, 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff', but Ivan can't sit still and bounds into the frame to disrupt the scene, yapping furiously. The narrator pleads with Ivan to behave but ultimately gives up and begins to tell 'The Three Bears', - to the same end. Ivan ruins story after by frightening the gingerbread man off his pan, and the three pigs out of their homes. Finally the narrator gives up and begins to tell a story about Ivan, who promptly wanders off. We then discover that, as dogs are wont to do, Ivan has lost interest and has passed out.
It's fun, and the familiarity of the stories disrupted by terrier anarchy seems like it would make for a good storytime read - and my goodness, who doesn't like seeing the three bears chased away by a tiny yapping dog?
