Book by Jean Horton Berg
Maybe I'm biased as a Boston Terrier owner *but* this is a big beautiful reproduction of a classic kid's story with interesting pictures that look a bit different on each page. Sometimes Archie the Boston looks cartoonish, sometimes he looks realistic. My toddler loves the Boston drawings so we just skip over the story. As an adult reading the story, I was terrified at the thought of a large loose dog charging my Boston and the insinuation that the family "won't have their nice little dog long" was really frightening, especially accompanied by the great first illustration of the snarling Boxer. The story still makes me a bit sad thinking about all the times this scenario DOESN'T work out as it does in the book but it's okay to be positive and hopeful toward the unknown like the story suggests. I'm a worrywart as the grapevine at the end has me wondering if they knew grapes are toxic to dogs? :D Sweet story, wonderful vintage illustrations of the BEST DOG BREED AROUND, the Boston Terrier!
Such a weird and lame story from the 50s but the quality of the book is impeccable. We got it for a friend who is having their first child and they are obsessed with their fur child Boston terrier. The illustrations are perfectly vintage.
I'd been looking for this book for years because two of our grandchildren had their pictures taken when they were small & the photographer used it as a prop so it looked like our grandson was reading to his sister, our granddaughter, but I had the wrong title. Now both our grandchildren are expecting babies very soon so I started looking for it all over again with the correct title this time, but never dreamed someone would be selling it after all these years, it's Copyright is 1951, but there it was. Also, I have a soft spot for Boston Terriers, I grew up with one & had a couple while our children were growing up. I was also surprised at what good condition the book is in. Thank you.
Book arrived brand new in mint condition. Purchased this for my 5 year, as we recently got a Boston Terrier puppy. She immediately recognized the breed on the cover art and was thrilled to read this book. The story was cute with a positive message.
I got this for my nephew since our family loves boston terriers so much. It's a cute story and I think he's going to really like it and so will my sister.
We love Boston Terrier and purchased this book for Christmas. It has great vintage illustrations and a nice ending to a difficult situation.
I bought this for my husband who is a huge Boston Terrier fan. He loved it. Only bad thing was that I also bought some beard stuff, they were shipped together and a little of that leaked on the back of the book.
I love Boston's, so I had to add this to my Boston collection, just a kid at heart.
