Summary: Toby loves the warmth of the sun, a friendly lap, and the rug in front of the fireplace. But sometimes the warmth goes away, and Toby wishes he could keep it with him always. One day, Pinkie shows up. She steals his place in the sun and on the lap. Dejected, Toby heads down to the basement where he curls up in a cold corner. But who should follow him down there but Pinkie, who snuggles up right next to him. And suddenly Toby realizes that the warmth he’s been looking for is with his new friend. 32 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: What’s not to like when two dogs become buddies? This would also make a great book for a child dealing with a new sibling.
Cons: Toby seems like a bit of a martyr, banishing himself to the basement when the going gets rough.
