Booklist Review

Gr. 1-3. Arthur, an ordinary dog in Mrs. Humber's Pet Shop, longs for a home. He tries imitating other animals in hopes of being chosen, but he has no luck until a young girl hears about an extraordinary dog who performs tricks, making it a happy day for Arthur. Thoroughly satisfying and illustrated with zest. (Published in the U.S. by Gareth Stevens as Who Wants Arthur?)
