School Library Journal - 06/01/1997 PreS-Gr 1--Capucilli and Schories team up again for another beginning reader featuring Biscuit the puppy. Here, the dog and his young owner find a duckling and reunite it with its family in the pond. Colorful and appealing watercolor illustrations, surrounded by ample white space, support the text. Biscuit's face is filled with new-puppy curiosity and his tail seems to be constantly wagging. Short, simple sentences in large-sized print contribute to the readability. Plenty of quacks and woofs encourage expressive telling aloud. Sure to be a popular choice.--Sharon R.

Booklist - 05/01/1997 Biscuit, the adorable little tan puppy, finds something under the house. Is it a ball? A bone? No, it's a baby duckling that Biscuit's owner takes back to the pond. The duckling is reunited with its parents and siblings but still wants to follow its new friend Biscuit. Like the previous book, Biscuit (1996), this features short, very simple sentences and nice large shapes set against expanses of white space. Format and content make this just right as a My First I Can Read Book. (Reviewed May 1, 1997) - Copyright 1997 Booklist.
