Author(s): William Steig
An ALA Notable Book
"William Steig has created an engaging hero, a dog with a heart of gold, nerves of steel, and the varied talents of Renaissance Man. Dominic sallies forth to see the world and to earn gratitude and acclaim for his generosity, his courage, and his prowess at absolutely everything to which he turns his paw-- including the foiling of a dastardly troop of villains who have been preying on the community...A good story for reading aloud."--"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books""A likely candidate for classic status."--Selma G. Lanes, "Harper's"
