Alexandra Day; Illustrated by the author
Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Madeleine’s mom has to help Carl's Cousin, Gamble, get ready to compete in his event at the dog show, and she tells Carl and Madeleine to meet her by the show ring. Do Carl and Madeleine listen? Of course not! They immediately set off to explore--they help groom other dogs, have a snack, test out dog beds, create an agility test of their own--all with hilarious results and mom none the wiser. With its minimal text and Alexandra Day's signature art, CARL GOES TO THE DOG SHOW is sure to please Carl fans, Rottweiler lovers, and dog enthusiasts of all sorts.
“Mischievous Madeleine and her canine companion, Carl the Rottweiler, attend a dog show in this latest entry in the long-running series.” --Kirkus Reviews
