In PUPPY, PUPPY, PUPPY— a picture book illustrated by Fred Koehler — Baby makes trouble, and Puppy makes trouble (of a remarkably similar sort).  Together they’re double the trouble.  But Baby needs Puppy, and Puppy needs Baby.  So please, whatever you do, don’t separate these two best friends.



"Sternberg's text is simple and repetitive, perfect for a young audience, and the contrast between words ... and images ... will elicit plenty of giggles. ... Baby and Puppy are a fetching duo... The book portrays a loving, multiethnic family... [and] this is a fine addition for storytime or one-on-one sharing." -School Library Journal

"Puppy and Baby are double the trouble and double the love in this baby-and-dog picture book. ... Understated text achieves humor through counterpoint with comical illustrations that reveal the messes and mischief inherent in these activities. ... A book to enjoy with dog-loving little ones..." -Kirkus Reviews
