Peg Leg Peke

(4) PS Pekingese pup Peke laments his cast-encased leg until an offstage narrator convinces him he'll feel better if he pretends to be a peg-legged pirate. The narrator/dog dialogue is endearing, if a bit precious, as is the fact that Peke's "treasure" turns out to be his blankie. Cartoony illustrations use boldly colored accessories and backgrounds to play off Peke's white fur.
