Publishers Weekly Review

Children's NOTES Good Reads, Reissued This summer, old and new favorites get a second run. Originally published in 1956, Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion, illus. by Margaret Bloy Graham, chronicles the messy adventures of a runaway canine and his transformation "from a white dog with black spots to a black dog with white spots." Despite his showboating, his family doesn't recognize him until he's scrubbed clean. In this reissued edition, Graham has added splashes of color to some of her original pictures.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2--In order to avoid a bath, Harry the dog hides the scrubbing brush and runs away from home. The canine enjoys a series of entertaining adventures that add to his griminess before he heads back home hungry and lonely. He's so dirty that his own family doesn't recognize him, so he must do the unthinkable and beg for a bath. Through the bubbles, he is identified and the story ends on a comfortable note with Harry curled up on his bed. Based on Gene Zion's charming book (HarperCollins, 1956), this DVD includes both the English and the Spanish versions with subtitles. Harry, brought to life with a delightful wagging tail and a short, happy bark, frolics through Margaret Bloy Graham's illustrations. Both the English and the Spanish narrations are well paced and entertaining. There is one minor flaw in the synchronization of dad's lips during the Spanish language presentation. Some characters have been updated from the original book illustrations to provide racial diversity. The jazzy soundtrack and fun sound effects help bring this classic tale to life.--Heather Acerro, Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, IN (c) Copyright 2010.

Horn Book Review

Graham has recolored her illustrations for this edition of the classic story about the white dog with black spots who hates baths. Harry's fun and troubles are told simply, and the drawings are full of action and humor. From HORN BOOK Spring 2003, (c) Copyright 2010.
