The amicable aardvark and a frisky new puppy are a natural combination--and a winning one. In the 18th title in the Arthur series, Brown entertains fans with a typically blithe narrative, bolstered by full-page pictures brimming with kid-tickling particulars. ``I'll have him trained in no time,'' promises a sincere Arthur when D.W. announces that her brother's new puppy, Pal, is ``very naughty.'' But the task proves a bit more arduous than Arthur anticipates. After the rambunctious dog makes a mess of the house one night, Arthur's parents banish him to the garage. But when the key to the garage mysteriously disappears, Pal gets to stay indoors a little longer, giving him ample time to create more chaos. Readers will love watching Arthur's attempts to train his pet, who--not surprisingly--gets the last laugh on his doting young master. Fetching. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
