As the title says, in this uncomplicated rhyming story, Frankie gets a doggie. Frankie chooses from an animal shelter lineup of 14 dogs waiting for adoption – an illustration that is both heartwarming and humorous as each canine has a posted note describing its personality. (Kind of pulls at the heartstrings, too, as so many are looking for homes.) Doggie goes home with Frankie, clashes with Kitty and finally settles in. Spoiler alert: There’s a happy ending, with love for all – even Kitty.
