McDuff Moves in

A little dog jumps out of the dogcatcher's truck one night and goes looking for a home. At the first house, another dog barks at him. At the second, a cat hisses. But at the third house, a young couple invite him in to share their sausages and rice pudding and to have a bath. Though they start to drive him to the pound, they change their minds and take him back home to stay.

McDuff Comes Home
by Rosemary Wells, Susan Jeffers

The white terrier who found a home with Fred and Lucy in McDuff Moves In gets lost again when he sees a rabbit in the neighbor's yard and chases him into Mrs. Higgins' garden. The matronly Mrs. Higgins puts him in the sidecar of her red motorcycle and is driving him into town, when McDuff recognizes the smells, the sounds, and the sight of home. All four characters enjoy a splendid picnic together. Like the first book, this one features a believable portrayal of the canine point of view. A quirky picture book, just right for little dog lovers.

McDuff's New Friend

During a Christmas Eve blizzard, McDuff the terrier hears night noises and repeatedly wakes his family to go out. Finally, they discover Santa, stuck in the garage, looking for a shovel so he can dig his sleigh out of a snowdrift. . The book, appealing to both young children and adults, has cozy paintings that have an underlying humor and are as spunky as dear McDuff.

McDuff Goes to School
by Rosemary Wells, Susan Jeffers

It's off to dog-training class for everyone's favorite Westie. McDuff hits it off with the new neighbors' dog, Marie, but makes no points with Marie's French-speaking owners when he won't get off of their sofa; he is enrolled in school to learn basic commands. Readers get a few lessons, too, in the French words for sit, stay, come and heel along with a fun twist at the end.
