I love this book! The illustrations are amazing and the story is wonderful! So imaginative!
Dad's allergies aren't necessarily a deal-breaker when it comes to Harry's longing for a pet dog -- all Harry needs to do is put on his X-35 Infra-Rocket Imagination Helmet, and his dream dog appears. No one but Harry can see Waffle (who appears to be made from giant, fluffy clouds), but that doesn't stop boy and dog from forging a close friendship. Yet when Harry's dad (whose allergies have improved) brings home a real dog, Harry's loyalty is challenged. Whimsical, "distinctively idiosyncratic" (Booklist) artwork heightens the joyous tone of this imaginative picture book. Readers who are themselves allergic to dogs might enjoy Linda Joy Singleton's Snow Dog, Sand Dog.
