Staff Reviews


It happens that I’m a Maurice Sendak freak - his illustrations were the catalyst for my reading my very first book when I was four, and the love affair has endured lo these many years.

 

Jennie is our protagonist in the tale - a Cairn Terrier of the finest pedigree.  Jennie has everything a dog (or person) could want; a comb and brush, two different types of pills, eyedrops, eardrops, even a red sweater for the cold weather.  The only thing Jennie didn’t have was EXPERIENCE; and that’s what she sets out to find. Jennie’s not a particularly loving or caring dog, but she has personality that knows no bounds.  I read this when I was 23 or so, and giggled my way through it.  It’s a rollicking good time.

Description


A daring imagination has woven a simple rhyme into a brilliantly original tale [about Jennie, the Sealyham terrier, who seeks Experience and becomes the star of the World Mother Goose Theatre].
