Review from SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL:  In their latest adventure, Tiny, a barn-size dog, and his boy help Uncle John find his lost kittens. With a nose as big as a small boy's head, the pup is well suited for the job, and he does not disappoint. This easy reader uses simple text to tell a predictable, uncomplicated story that will appeal to children. Illustrations are cartoonlike and cheery, providing visual clues for the more difficult vocabulary ("hayloft," "horseshoe," "grasshopper"). Tiny dominates the spreads with his exaggerated proportions and is sure to appeal to kids' fascination with friendly giants.
A perky bluebird provides a clever counterpoint to the colossal canine. Children will enjoy identifying the farm
animals andsearching the pictures for the missing felines.”
