Poodle Who Barked

Charlotte Zolotow. Henry Holt & Company, $16.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-8050-6306-6

First published in 1964, Charlotte Zolotow's The Poodle Who Barked at the Wind, starring the lovable noisy pup, gets new illustrations by Valerie Coursen. Her paintings of the small black poodle aptly contrast the canine's busy, protective bounce (and barking) with the forlorn silence that follows while the children are away in this timeless homage to a cherished family pet.
