    Dumpling the dog and her people move out into the country where she has room to run, a woods to walk in, and absolutely no friends One special characteristic of Dumpling is that she has no sense of smell, making it very hard for her to relate to other dogs So when Dumpling was digging under a bush and was sprayed by a skunk, she doesn t really notice But her people do They try one way after another to get rid of the stench, but nothing works until they try tomato juice When Dumpling is fi Dumpling the dog and her people move out into the country where she has room to run, a woods to walk in, and absolutely no friends One special characteristic of Dumpling is that she has no sense of smell, making it very hard for her to relate to other dogs So when Dumpling was digging under a bush and was sprayed by a skunk, she doesn t really notice But her people do They try one way after another to get rid of the stench, but nothing works until they try tomato juice When Dumpling is finally clean and stench free, they release her to the backyard admonishing not to play with the skunk again But Dumpling misses the skunk and when she can t find the skunk she starts to get sadder and sadder In this tale of unlikely friends, there is of course a happy ending, except maybe for the people who have to smell Dumpling.This book is charming Dumpling is a round dog with a long nose, made all thesilly by the fact she can t smell The family is wonderfully cartoony, with a round faced boy, angular mom and square dad But the skunk steals the show with the big pink nose and always lifted tail Jenkin s words are equally successful as they tell the story of loneliness and unusual friendship The text may seem long for a picture book at first glance, but it is very easy to read aloud and never drags.Highly recommended for children ages 4 7 Add this to your dog story times, friendship story times, and to your pile of books that kindergarteners and first graders will enjoy hearing read aloud

    Different story Cute little dog and skunk One of those longer picture books too many words for the new reader to do on their own Too long to read in one storytime sitting But cute and worth individual readalouds.

    Cute story that was much too long and wordy to read to young children.

  7. The Brothers The Brothers says:

    In this somewhat long story a dog without any animal friends becomes friends with a skunk because she doesn t have a sense of smell.Illustrations are cartoony and sweet.

    Very fun and funny book to read with the family, specially if you own a dog and live out in the woods.
