Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
In this third installment of a charming series, first grader Posey is excited when a new neighbor moves next door, a neighbor with a dog. Posey needs a dog to help her out with Miss Lee's assignment to write a story about a pet, either a pet of your own or a pet you hope to have one day. But Posey has a secret problem: "She was a tiny bit afraid of dogs." And the dog next door happens to be a very large dog, with a very large bark. In need of some protective powers, Posey dons her pink tutu, "magic" veil, and "princess wand" and heads over to see if she can be brave enough to make friends with this giant dog who might or might not like little girls. But when she sees that the dog has his paw caught in the chain link fence, she finds a way to make friends and be a hero, too. Greene expertly paces her text to generate just the right amount of tension, while making use of every story element from teasing neighbor boys to wise Gramps who informs Posey that "Barks don't mean a thing." Sisson's expressive, affectionate drawings delight. Author Stephanie and illustrator Stephanie have teamed up for another pitch-perfect story for the newly confident first grade reader eager for a "real" chapter book to read on her own. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.
Kirkus Reviews

Posey, now a first grader, wants to be a big kid but she is still a little girl.

When everyone starts talking about Luca's new pet dog, Posey longs for a live pet, but her mother insists that little brother Danny is enough of a challenge at the moment. Also, Posey nervously remembers the time a big dog knocked her down at the park. When a very big dog moves in next door, Posey must face her fears. Armed with the wise words of her chili-cooking grandfather, Posey sets out to meet the new dog and learns that she is braver than she thinks. This Posey book is an especially winning tale. The illustrations show up at just the right moment, reflecting the honest emotions of this lovable little girl. When the older boys tease her, her fists ball up as she stomps away, and when she and her friends share a deliciously scary story, their eyes widen in fear. The sentence length and word choice are perfect for the transitioning reader—any unfamiliar word will be easy to decode in context or by using the phonetic clues.

Storytelling in a book for newly independent readers can seem stiff, but Greene doesn't miss a step. Posey is the perfect fictional friend for any first-grade girl. (Chapter book. 5-8)
