In the sixth book in the fabulous Martha Series, the lovable talking dog Martha and her companion Skits learn of a new dog obedience school in their town. When dogs come out, it's questinonable rather they're even dogs anymore. They don't get in the trash, sleep on the furniture, or even chase squirrels and cats anymore. Martha knows somethings wrong and goes to investigate. When she tries though, she's captured by a Dr. Pablum who wants to show the world a talking dog. Will Martha be able to set things straight and get back the canine companions we all know and love? I'll let the reader find out by reading the ending. This is another great classic by Meddaugh and sure to be the great keystone to a child's Martha collection.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Martha to the rescue
Martha the talking dog is back and fortified with her usual alphabet soup she investigates The Perfect Pup Institute. Otis Weaselgraft trains dogs to be obedient by placing a Robo Rover Brain Blocker in the dog's collars.Yikes!!!! It is the doggie version of the Stepford Wives. The caninies are acting like robots. Thank heavens Martha is there to solve the problem by turning the tables on Weaselgraft exposing his fraudulent operation. Watercolor illustrations and speech balloons are the usual trademarks of Meddaugh. You just have to love Martha and so will your audience. This is a perfect read aloud for storytime. Perfectly Martha will not stay on library shelves.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
