Will You Help Doug Find His Dog?

(3) PS Illustrated by Carmen Saldaña. "This is Doug. He has lost his dog. Poor Doug!" Simple text asks the reader to help find the missing canine. A series of characteristics (scruffy, spotted, small, etc.) narrows the possible pooches down to one--with a twist. Press Here–style invitations ("Give the spotted dogs a pat!"), cuddly-looking illustrations, and well-conceived design add to the appeal.
