R Brown is a Fitzhenry and Whiteside author.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- Jealousy in the toyroom rears its ugly head. A favorite rag doll sulks as her little girl romps outside with her new puppy. A poll of the other toys finds that they don't feel slighted. The playful pup grabs the doll for a run and a lick, losing her under a dresser. The little girl is upset when the doll is missing at bedtime, but the pup retrieves her to bring things to a satisfactory conclusion. Brown's artwork is richly colored and warmed with golden tones. She balances large, intimate close-ups of the toys and dollhouse and small active scenes of the frisky dog. It isn't hard to see why the little girl would prefer the lively animal to the continuously cranky doll. The story is not as strong as the engaging illustrations, but it will encourage children to express their emotions, especially the negative ones. --Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
