Rylant, Cynthia THE GREAT GRACIE CHASE: Stop That Dog! Il. by Mark Teague. ISBN 0-590-19941-6. New York: Blue Sky Press, 2001. Unp. $15.95. 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
