Weezer Changes the World by David McPhail

McPhail, David Weezer Changes the World 40 pgs. Beach Lane Books, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $15.99. One person (or dog) can make a difference in the world--that is the message we learn from Weezer. He begins as just an ordinary dog who does ordinary, gross dog things, but when something striking (i.e. a lightning strike) hits him, he suddenly is not the same dog he once was. He becomes interested in math, science, politics, and the environment. He starts doing things no ordinary dog would like discovering weather patterns and finding cures to diseases....until he is struck again and becomes the once again ordinary dog. Although the text seems a little awkward on the political/environment side, I think that readers will take something good from it. Plus the illustrations are great! EL-ADVISABLE.
