Edward, the Boston Terrier, main character of this book, is definitely a “city dog”. His visit to his relatives in the country, proves to be more than a little entertaining. This book has a simple story that could stand on its own. It’s the illustrations that will grab you and your child from the very first page. Spend lots of time discussing what you see. Each turn of the page offers something interesting to discuss. Edward is truly a fish out of water that finds himself in many hilarious predicaments during his visit at what truly becomes a Funny Farm.
