The naughty pooch from Stories About Rosie returns for three new adventures in The Rosie Stories by Cynthia Voigt, illus. by Cat Bowman Smith, a liberally illustrated chapter book. In one tale, Rosie just can't understand why the family gets fed three times a day, and she doesn't, so she tips over the garbage can and ferrets out the best parts. Youngsters will appreciate a narrative that reflects what Rosie thinks and understands (""Rosie didn't know evil and wicked, but she knew bad and out"").
