Review: Pinkerton, Behave

October 17, 2014

Pinkerton, Behave

A family gets a new puppy and has trouble teaching him to behave.  They decide to take him to obedience school and he still doesn’t get it.  The obedience trainer can’t control him either and kicks him out.

Later that night when a burglar enters the family’s home, Pinkerton and his overenthusiastic behavior saves the day.

Pinkerton, Behave by Steven Kellogg is an adorable story to share with youngsters.  Pinkerton is a sweet dog and his family loves him but he frustrates them at times because he doesn’t obey their commands.  His behavior proves to be just what they need when someone breaks in, proving that sometimes it’s good to be different.

The illustrations in this book are wonderful and Pinkerton’s silly behavior is sure to cause youngsters to giggle.  With it’s straightforward storyline and adorable pictures, Pinkerton, Behave is sure to be a hit with young animal lovers.

    We’ve read some other Stephen Kellogg books (The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate the Wash) — we’ll have to look out for this one! So cute.
