A follow-up to Rover, Howler by Michael Rosen, illus. by Neal Layton, continues the narrating canine's humorous adventures with his pet human, Rover, and her family as Rover's mother becomes pregnant. When Baby Howler (named for its noises) arrives, it steals the family's focus from the dog, who responds by having some puppies of his own-and regaining the spotlight.
