This book will appeal to dog-loving kids in other words, all kids. Here's the format: under the caption Dogs Do is a photo of, say, a German wirehaired pointer named Lukas holding a newspaper (remember those?) in his mouth. Flip the page, and under the words Dogs Don't!, with some added cartoon magic, Lukas is sprawled on a couch reading the paper. And in what is sure to be the biggest kid pleaser, Millie, a Lakeland terrier, squats beside a sign that reads "Please Clean Up After Your Dog." Turn the page, and Millie is sitting on a well, you get the picture.
