William Steig William Steig was born in New York City in 1907. William Steig books are excellent to read to children, with high vocabulary, creative stories, and fantastic illistrations.

William Steig wrote and illustrated numerous award-winning books, but Dominic is special to me because it's the first serious novel I read in school. My teacher in third grade read it aloud to my class, and I never forgot Dominic's story. Kids identify with him because he never grows jaded or bored with life.

Dear Friends,I am leaving in rather a hurry to see more of the world, so I have no time to say goodbye to you individually. I embrace you all and sniff you with love. I don't know when I'll be back. But back I will be.Dominic

It's time for a change, so Dominic packs his collection of hats and his piccolo and heads out, letting the world take him where it may. When Dominic encounters members of the Doomsday Gang, he easily foils their attempt to rob him. Legend of his victory quickly spreads, and each new friend Dominic meets tells him a story of their own less-fortunate meeting with the villains, and asks for help from the heroic dog. But can one lone dog bring down an entire band of hooligans?

Meet Dominic, a dog, who sets off on an adventure with his bandanna packed with food and a piccolo. The first creature he meets is a witch alligator who offers to tell him his fortune but Dominic, being shrewd does not part with any money. He does however, take her advice on which road to follow. Not much farther on he meets a catfish who advises him of his need for a spear.

Will Dominic really need the spear? You bet! It is not much later that he meets three members of the dreaded Doomsday Gang! Will he win the battle?

Dominic is the sort of dog you would like to meet in human form. He is very considerate of others and even saves a yellow jacket from a spider's web. When he comes to the home of Bartholomew Badger, who is 100 years old, he stays and cares for him until his death. After burying him, he then searches for the treasure that Bartholomew has left him. A great lesson here as Dominic soon realizes how much of a burden wealth can be. How does he handle it?

SO many great characters in this book. Kids will smile at Matilda Fox and her five goslings! Yes, that's not a typo. The goose has the surname of Fox! So many more that you will meet as you journey with Dominic.

With pictures spread sporadically throughout this book that add to the storytelling this is a chapter book that is FANTASTIC as a read aloud over several days or great for older, independent readers. The writing is not at all dumbed down so don't be surprised if you get asked what a word means. You may even have to look some up yourself!

For parents who are concerned about the influence of alcohol, alcohol is consumed but not on a regular basis and where it occurs flows naturally with the story and setting.
This was one of my favorite books as a kid, I have been buying copies now to give to the kids I know. The story is a little like an expanded fairytale (young hero goes out to seek his fortune, levels up, makes friends, saves the day many times). I've always really loved Dominic because he was a straightforward every-man (or every-dog) but also very noble in that he helped others and was fearless. Steig based Dominic on his own father, which I've always found rather sweet. The pictures are also really fun and there are lots of them. It's a nice stepping stone for a kid who enjoyed Steig's more well known picture books but is now ready for chapter books.
I read this book 20 or more years ago and had forgotten about it until yesterday, when I began assembling books for a tutoring job. I sought out delightful, imaginative books, and this one came to mind. I didn't remember the title but did remember the illustrations. Fortunately some folks on goodread had listed the title - without that resource, I may never have found it. Anyhoo, it was a quick read, and just as delightful as I remembered... although I understood the character somewhat differently than I imagine I had as a child. The language was thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended! I'll be reading it to my daughter after we finish The Chronicles of Narnia.
Throughout my life, I'd always remembered the "first book I ever read" as about some dog who played the piccolo and traveled around with his possessions in a sack on a stick. I remembered it so fondly, like one of those few, golden memories you hold onto from childhood, when you still believed in the tooth faerie and unicorns.

I never remembered the title, though, and the book had long since disappeared from my parent's house. One day I did an extensive Google search with only the words "dog," "piccolo" and "traveler" and managed to stumble across William Steig's website.

I just bought myself a new copy of "the first book I ever read" and can't wait to read it again. It really is a book that has stayed with me my entire life. I just found it astonishing that so many other people wrote the exact same thing in their reviews. How can it be that one book has been the "first book" for so many people? I don't know, but I do know that if you can let it be your kid's first book, they will cherish it forever. I sure did.
I bought this book to read to my six and eight year old boys. I have tried many different books to keep the boys entertained but most books were either too boring or too scary for before bed (they seem to have lots of nightmares). I bought this book based on the reviews and I am so happy that I did. This was an awesome book. It has great adventures and is exciting to read without too much scary stuff. Each chapter has a new adventure and Dominic meets new friends. The chapters are a perfect length and it has pictures included. Every night my kids would say, "Dominic, we need to read Dominic!" Although we have been reading at night for (eight) years this is the first book that they begged me to read. This was an absolutely perfect book for us and I loved it as much as they did. This is one of my favorite books of all time.
Dominic is a wonderful chapter book for mid elementary school readers, and includes fun and wisdom for all ages. Great read aloud story. William Steig is one of the great authors. Dominic is gentle but has piercing confidence. Steig’s characters always strike a real chord emotionally. I personally never forget a William Steig book.
