Charming Carl the Babysitting Rotty

Good dog Rottweiler, Carl,is left beside the escalator in charge of the baby and pram, while Mother shops. Carl and Baby decide to have an adventure. With Baby riding carl like a horse, they tour the department store trying things on and genarally creating havoc until Carl senses it is time to get back to the pram. Mother arrives back at the pram totally unaware the sleeping baby has been out and about and getting into mischief with always Carl will never tell. If you have a Rottweiler in your life you will be especially predisposed to admire the Carl series by Alexandra Day. Her artwork is extraordinary and worthy of framing and you really do not need any text at all because the pages are so self explanatory and well done. I like the way the pictures evoke a simpler time and remind us of the 1930's or 40's. The stories are charming and sweet and Carl the Dog is a loveable lummox who deftly manages baby and keeps them both out of trouble. Unfortunately, Rottweilers get a bad rap when they are in truth, the most loyal and attentive family dogs. Rottweilers are wonderful with children and will always protect a child. I am giving my son and his wife the entire series as gifts because they presented me with a Rottweiler GrandDog 6 years ago. These adorable books are tomorrow's collectibles you can buy, keep and read.

a book for all ages

The series of Carl the Rottie books are a treat for young and not so young. Humor, great art work and tight story line makes for fun beauty and excitement (at a pleasant level), Buy for your own pleasure, If someone else enjoys your find then that is icing for the cake.

A great book for all ages. Need a laugh; this will do it.

After "reading" this book I felt as though I could entrust Carl to babysit anytime.

Baby loved it!

I gave this to a friend's granddaughter. The little girl was uninterested in books until she received "Carl Goes Shopping" - now she can't get enough!

Carl books aren't read, they are imagined!

I give Carl books to all my friend's kids. Since there is little text, it is left to the "reader" to make up the story or just to enjoy the artwork of Carl the Rottweiler and his adventures
