Carl is every Mother's best babysitter and now in these books he is helping his other friends - dogs, cats, ducks, etc.

This time Carl is helping Momma Dog by watching her three frolicking puppies while she takes a well deserved nap.

Warm and inviting with simple sentence structure and the fantastic pictures of Carl this will delight any Carl lover!

My 6 year old loves dogs and loved this series. He enjoys the funny pictures and reads it for FUN on his OWN! As someone who has never been a fan of the Carl books and their stiff overly realistic illustrations, I've have to say, I think the readers are more successful than the picture books.

Illustrations not at the same level as most of the Carl books(unsurprising, as this is a learn-to-read book and therefore has words, albeit few and simple ones). Nevertheless cute as a button. Good dog, Carl.
