Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Join Down Girl and her friend, Sit, as they travel with their masters to the Cowpoke Dude Ranch for a cattle drive. The big adventure includes being out on the range, meals from the chuck wagon, and a cattle stampede. What makes this story hilarious is that Down Girl narrates the story and, in case you have not figured it out, Down Girl is a dog. Taking a canine's perspective, find out about barking dogs, ugly dogs, a gasoline-powered bull, and a food dish on wheels. This vacation takes two city dogs and their masters beyond the fence in their yards and out on the fence-less prairie. There are some illustrations throughout the book that may help to clarify what Down Girl is referring to in the story. Dog owners will enjoy and laugh at this canine's view of the world. This adventure is part of the "Down Girl and Sit" series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
Gr 2–3—Down Girl and Sit, two dogs, visit a dude ranch with their owners. Since the story is narrated by Down Girl, readers learn little about what the humans do on their vacation, but they will happily follow as the city pups meet Git Along, the ranch dog, and go on a series of adventures. They meet barking squirrels (prairie dogs), ugly dogs (coyotes), and get lost in the desert. They enjoy running free with no fences, but then realize that this could be a problem. This small-format chapter book has black-and-white drawings on most pages. It has a lot text but plenty of child appeal. It will charm youngsters who are ready for books with real plots and long sentences. It is the perfect next step for readers who have outgrown easy-to-reads.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
