In this chunky pop-up book, Arlo, a shaggy yellow dog, requires a trip to the optometrist after he has trouble playing catch with his bespectacled owner. Saltzberg introduces the process of getting glasses in bright, funny pictures with tabs, foldouts, and other features. A tab changes an eye chart from clear letters ("This is how the chart looked to me") to blurry ones ("This is how it looked to Arlo"). Saltzberg's candid and encouraging tone should ease readers into their first pair of specs. Ages 3–up. (May)
