This book is a fantasy. Since none of this could really happen in real life. There is no way that a dog could cook and live in a two story house and talk and all sorts of things. The story does not really have a very well thought out plot it seems, and at time the story gets a little confusing. The author does not explain who Crispin is and how it came to be that the dog is all alone, but it talks about why he is named Crispin's Crispian, but then gives no answer. As an adult you can infer what the story means, but for a child this would be very difficult.

When my son was young, we read this book so much, he knew every word by heart and when to turn the pages, even though he couldn't read. I was so excited to find Mr. Dog again, now that my son has his first child, so he can enjoy reading it to her. It is a well written, cute Little Golden Book and I would highly recommend it to anyone with small children. My son was thrilled and remembered the book well.

My favorite book as a child. But the author is MARGARET WISE BROWN who much later wrote GOODNIGHT MOON! Garth Williams is the illustrator. Get it right, Barnes and Noble.

I am sixty-one years old now and I remember my mother reading this to me as a little girl. I read this book to all of my children and then to my grand daughter. It is just a darling story about an independent old dog who likes his own company AND strawberries. ... until.... he meets a lonely little boy to share his life with. The story ends with Good Night and Sweet Dreams and that's how I always ended my night's reading with my children - Mr. Dog or not. So, he's a grand old dog... and a marvelous book... and will forever in my heart also be a part of my family.

This is a wonderful story of an independent dog who loves a boy.It was a favorite of the whole family. I remember it so well from my childhood. Later, when I was grown, my parents had an identical looking dog named 'Crispy' after Crispins Crispian.
