Get to know Carl!

My sister collects this series of mostly wordless picture books. The artwork is eye catching and the stories always good for a giggle. The stories all have a similar thread: mom has to step out for a bit and Carl is charged with taking care of the daughter. Carl's initiates all kind of messy, naughty fun for his young master, but the mess is always cleaned up before mom gets home. Great P.R. for rotties! See more of my book reviews at:

Another Carl Success!!!!

I always know that another Carl book will bring wonderful art, whimsy....and a PLOT, which consistently shows how smart and kind our canine companions truly are!

perfect for dog lovers

In this title in the ever-popular series about Carl the trusty Rottweiler, his owner and Madeleine leave Carl to nap for the afternoon while they run some errands. While they're gone, Carl has a number of adventures of his own, including sharing cookies at the bakery, helping out the town vet, participating in a magic show, saving puppies from a fire, and finally running back home to arrive right before his owner. Childen will enjoy an inside joke as Carl runs into Madeleine and her mother at every turn, although the mother somehow never notices the giant dog. Day dazzles again with her traditional watercolor artwork, and the many details in the illustrations lend themselves well to many re-readings. This is a charming addition to the Carl stories and will be enjoyed by children two and up.

Positive view of Rotties

I have always liked the Carl books since I have owned rottweillers for the past 16 years. They are great dogs who have received a bad reputation because of irresponsible owners. This book shows the life of a loving family dog. If you ever wondered what your pet does while you are at work, this is the book to read. Another great thing about the book if that it is told in pictures. You will only find words on the first and last page of the book, but the author and illutrator get the story across very well.

Another great Carl book!

This is another great Carl book! The story is good and the illustations are beautiful. Our toddler loves this series!
