Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K- In this sixth book in the series, the black Labrador retriever entertains the idea of getting a job as she watches her family leave for school and work. She imagines herself as a school bus driver, teacher, zookeeper, lifeguard, archaeologist, paleontologist, ballplayer, president, hip-hop star, biologist, rescue dog, farmer, and chef, resulting in many humorous scenarios, all of which are depicted from her point of view, of course. Sally is seen driving a bus, which is full of dogs. The beachgoers are all canines. Washing dishes in the chef fantasy is dog-style-licking the plates clean. When Sally's family members return home at the end of the day, she realizes that she already has the best job in the world-taking care of them. The woodcut and colored-pencil illustrations are crisp and uncluttered. Sally is the main focus with few background distractions. If this pup is popular in your library, you'll need this title.-Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI

Kirkus Reviews
Huneck continues his popular series about Sally the black lab with this sixth entry in the series. When she's left at home, Sally wishes she could go off to school or a job like the other members of her family. In simple, first-person narration, she considers all the jobs she could do, including driving a school bus, teaching school, running for president and opening a restaurant. The names of quite a few occupations and fields of study are included, such as biologist and paleontologist. Huneck's droll sense of humor is evident in both text and illustrations when Sally imagines licking the plates clean in her restaurant or cleaning up after the elephants as a zookeeper. After thoughtful consideration, Sally decides her real job is taking care of her family, illustrated in a rather odd final spread by playing tug-of-war with a sock, with the son of the family on the other end of the sock. Though this is not the most dynamic of Sally's adventures, Huneck's woodblock print illustrations in his distinctive folk-art style are always as charming as Sally herself.

    Not compatible with Nook for PC

    I didn't realize this "read to me" book was not compatible with the Nook for PC app. Nowhere did I see this mentioned, nor was I alerted as I was purchasing it. Had to request a refund since I couldn't see/read it, sadly. I'm sure it's as great as all of Huneck's other books.

    Awesomeballs

    I love the Sally stories. They are hilarious and the narrator's voice is perfect for the dead pan humor of the dog's adventures. My 3 year old is a 'cat person' already, but can't get enough of Sally.

    Oops!

    Wrote the review on the wrong book! I was thinking about the vet book. This one is good too but I love all of the Sally books.
