For my wife's birthday, I bought her copies of a bunch of the picture books she had as a child from her parents' subscription to the Parents' Magazine Press book club. We'll be working our way through the pile over the next week or two. Unfortunately, these creaky old books don't have the nostalgic glow about them that they have for my wife, so my enjoyment is less than hers in general.

First up, we have a hound dog with an Eeyore demeanor who feels slighted that his owner is paying more attention to some new chicks that just hatched on their farm than to him. With a couple of his wildlife friends, Otter and Beaver, Fletcher hatches a preposterous plan to recapture the girls' affection, but it also unintentionally creates a big stir in their small town.

Plodding and dull.

Mr. Whiskers is afraid to go to the dentist to get his sore tooth taken care of in this sweet Cranberryport picture-book from 1994, until Maggie and Grandmother convince him that the dentist is there to help him, and that he should definitely pay her a visit. Taking the plunge, Mr. Whiskers schedules an appointment, and finds Dr. Martinez friendly and helpful, as she carefully explains everything she is doing to him, during his checkup...

One of six paperback Tales of Cranberryport picture-books published in 1994 and 1995, as a continuation of Wende and Harry Devlin's series of full-sized Cranberryport picture-books, begun in 1971 with Cranberry Thanksgiving, Cranberry Trip to the Dentist offers another charming visit with these beloved characters, and their comfy small town in New England. Although, much like Cranberry Moving Day—the other paperback Tales of Cranberryport picture-book I have read—I wouldn't say this was the equal of the earlier books, I found it appealing, appreciating the vintage-style illustrations and wholesome story. Recommended to fans of these books and characters, and to anyone seeking a reassuring story about dentists for younger children, who may be experiencing some fear of their own regarding the subject.… (mais)

Mr. Whiskers has never received a single Valentine. Maggie is concerned, but Grandmother doesn't have time to talk about it. A few days later, Mr. Whiskers is aghast to discover someone has sent him a Valentine. Who could have done that? In a strange coincidence, a lady in a green coat is asking around town about Mr. Whiskers. What could she want? Now Mr. Whiskers concerned. Armed with a heart-shaped box of chocolates, Mr. Whiskers makes his way to Maggie's house where he's pleasantly surprised.

The Bottom Line: As with Cranberry Thanksgiving, this book comes with a recipe. To read the complete review including taste test, please visit the Mini Book Bytes Book Review Blog.… (mais)

I love the colors and illustrations in this story. Delightfully awful
witch is no match for a calm and determined mother and son duo bent on opening a tearoom in the country.

*from my 9 year old,” The witch is hilarious and now I want to try blueberry pancakes! This is a very good book to read, especially over a bowl of blueberries.”

*The title will tell familes that avoid witchcraft and spells all they need to know.
