This time around, Mrs. Tuttle, after tracking 26 Matthews in Matthew A.B.C., has 20 Dalmatians named Daisy to keep straight in Daisy 1,2,3 by Peter Catalanotto. Here the teacher explains to her assistant Doris just how she charts the progress of each puppy in her weekly obedience class. The artwork depicts each pooch at its zaniest, with Daisy 4 able to perform at least one Copperfield-worthy magic trick and Daisy 9 looking very Jackie O in oversize sunglasses, surrounded by a bulldog security detail.
