Stanley's Beauty Contest
Bailey, Linda. 2009. Stanley's Beauty Contest. Illustrated by Bill Slavin. Kids Can Press.
Stanley is a dog. A dog who does NOT like the fact that his family has not only given him a bath but made him all smelly and unnatural. Banana shampoo. Yuck. He realizes soon enough that this 'beautifying' has a purpose. His family has entered him into a contest--a beauty contest. What's a dog got to do to be noticed? What does a dog have to do to have fun? This is a playful book that will appeal to young dog lovers.
