Gracie is a small, round dog who loves peace and quiet. When the
painters come to redecorate the kitchen, she barks to tell them to go
away. Instead, they put her outside. She discovers the gate is open and
decides to take a walk--all by herself. Soon, someone notices that
Gracie is gone; the neighborhood gives chase, and the race is on. The
simple pictures and story will delight young children, who will find the
race exciting and funny. Ages 4-8. Reviewed by Sue Grossman, Eastern
Michigan University at Ypsilanti
