Review quote

"Capucilli's frolicsome puppy romps through another adventure in this latest entry in the My First I Can Read Book series. Biscuit's owner attempts to teach the energetic pup how to fetch a ball. Instead, Biscuit rolls over, retrieves a bone, and chases the cat before finally returning with the ball. Capucilli skillfully relates a lively tale using simple language. The humorous antics of the pup will hold beginning readers' interest while brief, simple sentences and repetition of words allow them to master the tale on their own. Story and artwork are in perfect harmony. Schories's bright illustrations capture the impetuous spirit of the frisky canine and offer visual clues to support the words. The combination of engaging text and vivacious pictures provides encouragement for reluctant readers. This continuaton of the lovable puppy's capers is a real treat and will have audiences clamoring for more."--"Kirkus Reviews""Sweet Biscuit is back in another beginner's I Can Read Book. This time, a little girl is trying to teach the puppy to fetch a ball. Biscuit has no interest in learning--until the ball falls smack in the middle of a mud puddle: "Stop Bicuit! Don't fetch it now!" Too late. The design is excellent for new readers. The text is minimal--no more than seven or eight simple words on a page--the typeface is large and generously spaced, and the colorful pictures grab attention without detracting from the words. New readers unfamiliar with Biscuit's previous adventures will probably want to read them as well."--"Booklist""Biscuit bounds onto the scene ready for action in his newest adventure. Teaching her dog to fetch a ball takes patience and perseverance from his little girl andcreates lots of fun along the way. Daisy the cat distracts him from his task, but when the ball rolls into an appealing mud puddle, the pup can't resist running after it. Schories's colorful cartoonlike illustrations draw readers into this simple story that provides plenty of repetition for new readers."--"School Library Journal"
