“But even so the beguiling story, the affable illustrations of the smiling Gloria, the accidental mayhem in the background, and the myriad safety tips — such as ‘at all times pull the toothpick out of your sandwhich’ and ‘never lick a stop sign in the winter’ — add to the enjoyment. A glorious picture book.” — The Horn Book“Rathmann is a quick rising star on the earth of chidren’s books. In this book, she again shows her flair for creating real characters, dramatic situations and for knowing what’s going to make young audiences giggle and think.” — Children’s Book Review Magazine“Rathman brings a lighter-than-air comic touch to this outstanding, solid-as-a-brick picture book.” — Publisher’s Weekly“A five-star performance.” — School Library Journal Officer Buckle is a roly-poly bloke, dedicated to teaching schoolchildren important safety tips, such as never put anything in your ear and never stand on a swivel chair. The problem is, Officer Buckle’s school assemblies are dull, dull, dull, and the children of Napville just sleep, sleep, sleep. That may be, until Gloria the police dog is invited along! Stealthily pantomiming each and every safety tip in the back of Officer Buckle’s back, Gloria wins the children’s hearts. Meanwhile Officer Buckle assumes the cheers and laughter are all for him. As the master comedian Jerry Lewis once explained, each and every slapstick artist needs a straight man! Children might be highly entertained by the laugh-out-loud, adorable illustrations in this 1996 Caldecott Medal winner, at the same time as learning the value of teamwork and a pawful of nifty safety tips.
