Bulletin for the Center... - 07/01/2000 Fans of Tiny’s Bath (BCCB 4/99), beware . . . it is time for humongous pooch Tiny to take a trip to the library. After gathering the necessary materials (library card, wagon), Tiny and his owner take off for their destination, only to find that Tiny is not allowed inside. Of what use is Tiny now? Readers find out when Tiny’s brute strength is necessary to haul the young narrator’s choices back home. Davis’ vibrant, clear illustrations complement Meister’s short, simple sentences, allowing beginning readers to use picture clues to decode meaning. As with the author’s other installments in the Tiny series, this offers new readers an amusing visual joke in Tiny’s size and an appealingly close relationship between dog and boy. Though Meister’s story misses the opportunity for dramatic tension (just what kind of mischief might Tiny get into unattended outside the library?), fans of the previous books will want to check this one out. - Copyright 2000 The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois.

Booklist - 04/15/2000 The young narrator introduces Tiny, his very big dog. Make that enormous. They go everywhere together, but when it's time to go to the library, Tiny must stay outside. Tiny waits patiently while the boy gets a pile of books so big he can't push them all in his wagon. That's where Tiny comes in, ready to pull the wagon home for his friend. The plot is simple, to say the least, but the bright artwork looks for the laughs and finds them. New readers will like the very large Tiny, and find the book easy to read.
