Carl Goes Shopping

Alexandra Day, Author, Alexandra Day, Illustrator Farrar Straus Giroux $13.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-374-31110-0
Carl the Rottweiler and the inquisitive baby are off and running again. In Good Dog Carl , this delightful duo confined its adventures to the house; here, mother displays more confidence in her ``babysitter'' by leaving the twosome by themselves in a busy department store while she goes in search of curtains. After a whirlwind inspection of the toy, millinery and book departments--baby is enthralled with a copy of Rottweilers I Have Known --Carl and his charge head for the electronics section where they try out the camcorders and manage to get themselves on all the TV screens. Famished after a romp through carpeting, they sample crackers and dog biscuits in the gourmet section. Spotting mother on her way to the ``DOWN'' escalator, the adventurers streak back to the carriage and innocently await her return. Animated tempera paintings convey the same endearing quality evidenced in Day's previous book; once again she presents a winning combination of hilarious and tender moments in this--practically--wordless charmer. Ages 3-up. (Nov.)
