Puppy by Keith Graves is a hoot. Trog the cave boy is not satisfied with the usual selection of rock/stick/mud toys that are available. He spots a “puppy” and decides that is the perfect solution. The puppy is brought home, where it proceeds to cry and cry despite Trog’s best efforts to make him happy. The pup’s voracious appetite (and its after effects) don’t help matters. A satisfying conclusion for the little pup and a surefire sequel for Trog make this a very diverting read aloud.
