iPad only - $3.99 to FREE
Author “Arthur Yorinks has a terrifically funny voice that begs to be read out loud. When Lulu asks her parents for a dog for the 40th time, they give her a toy poodle -- not the miniature but the stuffed kind. She throws a tantrum … but when Harry the poodle wakes her up with a squeaky bark, Lulu is having none of it: 'You're not a dog. You're just a stuffed animal,' she growls at him. They argue, Harry fails her dog biscuit test and goes wild for bagels instead, they argue some more, and Harry tells her he's going back to where he came from -- Paris. Lulu decides to go, too. She has the perfect beret to wear on their trip. ” (NY Times)
