Dog lovers will delight in this Scholastic Video Collection compilation of classic canine stories. "Bark, George" is a whimsical story by Jules Feiffer about a dog that meows, oinks, and generally does everything but bark. Feiffer's simple drawings are nicely animated and viewers can't help but chuckle while watching the Veterinarian's comic efforts to cure George. "Dot the fire dog" features Lisa Desimini's original still drawings and explores just what firefighters and firedogs do all day and night. An animated "No roses for Harry" (Gene Zion) follows a cute little white dog with black spots as he cavorts and schemes to get rid of the hand-knit sweater that Grandma made for him. The DVD includes three bonus stories: Mercer Mayer's "A boy, a dog, and a frog" is a classic, wordless, real-life photography piece about a young boy's amusing attempts to catch a frog. Ezra Jack Keats' animated "Whistle for Willie" features a boy intent on learning to whistle for his dog and Marjorie Flack's "Angus lost," while a dated, real-life photography piece, nonetheless tells a charming story about the wanderings of a mischievous black Scottie dog.

No Roses For Harry is GREAT, as are the three special feature bonus feature stories! We loved them!
One caution: I found the first story too disturbing for our child when she was 3 or 4.
