Albert, the Dog Who Liked to Ride in Taxis

Illustrated by Pierre Pratt

Always Albert hopes for rain. On rainy days Mrs. Crabtree takes him with her for taxi rides. So much better than walks.
One day -- brilliantly sunny, for a surprise -- Albert hops a taxi alone. More than one taxi, actually.
You will never guess where he goes!
