THE NO DOGS ALLOWED RULE by Kashmira Sheth with illustrations by Carl Pearce. Albert Whitman, 2012.
More than anything else in the world, Ishan wants a dog. But his parents are adamantly opposed. Mother is afraid of dogs. Ishan decides to go on a campaign of being the kind and obedient son, offering to help out, cooking and painting, too. Of course, there are some disasters along the way. How can Ishan show how good a dog owner he will be? Warm family fun is certainly at the heart of this story which also gives some insight into Indian culture. <671>
