Scamp, Orvie's dog, wanted a more glamorous life so a magician transformed him into a bizarre mixture of zebra, elephant, camel, giraffe, elk, and rhino, "one whopping big surprise". All this makes a perfect vehicle for Peet's zany pictures.



21338 The Mary Palmer / Abner Graboff, ill.

The No-Sort-of-Animal.

Yet another boring small animal identity crisis book? Think again. A mildly irritated lion mentor finally tells the little animal that he needs a tail... He's a dog! He plays with the other dogs! "For you know there are many, many dogs who would be no-sort-of-animals if they didn't happen to have tails." The spare, well designed, and very funny pictures carry the story all on brown, white and tan pages, by Abner Graboff, an illustrator who should be better known.

Rab and His Friends

A story of an independent and faithful dog, that revolves around Ailie, a woman of about 60 who had a breast removed without anesthetic and got up, dressed herself and curtsied to the doctor. Her eventual death caused the dogs to lose hope. The dog pictured is not Rab, but a "yellow Newfoundland" bloodhound cross of 19 who looks kind of like a mastiff. Sketches for the plates were made by four of the author's friends. This was published much later in the US.
