Summary

George was once a bouncy pup; now his pace is steady and slow. Still, he feels special. Then a stray dog bristling with energy lands on George's doorstep and wiggles himself right into George's family. Full of tricks, this new dog, Zippity, is a wonder! But when Zippity disappears, it's George who proves that an old dog with a few tricks of his own can still be . . . SOME DOG! Expressive watercolors brimming with humor make this a perfect choice for dog lovers of any age, while any child who has felt his status usurped by a new sibling will cheer as George, a most unlikely hero, saves the day.

Table of Contents

“The watercolor-and-pencil illustrations perfectly capture the exuberance and spirit of this tale. Children who have had their own feelings of doubt, and of being overshadowed by the arrival of a new sibling, will relate to and embrace this story of each individual’s importance and place in a family.” —School Library Journal
 
“Well-written.  Hoyt’s enjoyable pencil-and-watercolor illustrations include lots of action scenes and a variety of perspectives and formats to add to the volume’s appeal.”  --the Reviews
 
"Each spread brims with energy and movement, propelling the action and the reader forward.  Satisfying sound play . . . . and frequent dog howls and yips will make this canine tale a hit as a group read-aloud and a read-alone for new readers.  Wa-roooo!"  --The Horn Book
 
"Well-crafted, breezy drawings animate the flurry and frenzy as sound effects in red type accentuate the action."  --Booklist
