Book Reviews - Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion

US Kirkus Review » Another funnybone tickling charmer by Gene Zion and Margaret Bloy Graham, who has drawn pictures of the gritty little dog in green and yellow settings. Because he hates baths, Harry buries the scrubbing brush one day and runs away from home to get really dirty. But when he returns, unrecognizable and to get blank stares from his family, Harry must undo his cleverness before he's welcomed again. Similar circumstances, identification and transfer, will make youngsters and their parents giggle at this. (Kirkus Reviews)
