Breakfast for Jack
Pat Schories
Wordless Picture Book
Ages 2 to 4
Front Street, 2004, 1-932425-16-0
  The boy is up and the family cat and his dog, Jack, are waiting for him, eager to get their breakfast. The boy feeds the cat but he is then distracted by the arrival of the rest of the family and soon he is sitting at the table eating his own breakfast. He has quite forgotten the Jack who looks at his bowl, looks at the boy, and clearly wonders what is going on. Finally Jack has had enough and he barks at his master reminding the boy of the food that was never delivered.
  The boy quickly sets about getting the dog's food but he is soon distracted once again and poor Jack is once again left breakfast-less.
  This charming little wordless book is sure to make dog lovers of all ages smile. The dog's obvious puzzlement and confusion, not to mention loss of heart is both funny and touching. Fans of the "Biscuit" books will recognize the artwork from those stories.
