Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
A country dog's life must be heaven, don't you think? Engaging in mischief, playing around, spending your time in the countryside making friends. Now you can join that rambunctious black Labrador Sally as she gets the chance to do all this and more in Stephen Huneck's playful new book. Sally's told she's going to the farm, and after a long drive, she and her owner finally arrive. Oh, the sights and smells! She makes lots of friends there, including a new dog named Molly, a friendly cow called Bessie whose milk Sally gets to drink, and a congenial but quiet scarecrow. Sally and Molly also chow down with the pig Penelope and help out with the farm work, but after a gray goose chases them around, they decide to head inside and have a little pie before nap time.

Carefree Sally is just the remedy for a case of boredom. This book brims with the feel of farm life, and Huneck's stylish, rustic woodcut prints capture the mood perfectly. Simple text will invite children to read the book themselves, and Sally will get them taking notice of how dogs like to do things (even if they don't have a dog themselves). A happy book dedicated to "America's farmers and their faithful dogs," Sally Goes to the Farm will surely get those tails a-wagging! (Matt Warner)

Publishers Weekly
Energetic woodcuts and straightforward text combine for this trip to the farmyard with the charming black Lab that debuted in Sally Goes to the Beach Sally Goes to the Farm by Stephen Huneck. At home in the heartland, a country dog introduces Sally to her farm friends. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This book will delight fans of Huneck's earlier "Sally" titles. The spreads are large, visually interesting, and often humorous. The story follows the black Lab and her owner to the farm where she meets Molly, also a dog, and they explore sights, sounds, smells, and other animals. The humor and simple text are perfect for a read-aloud and are well matched to the bold woodcut illustrations, which have a folk-art quality. Huneck's distinct style is graphically pleasing, the design of the spreads is dramatic, and the pictures also tell the story.-JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Sally's latest adventure finds her once again taking a road trip, but this time it's to a farm. Sally, the now familiar large black Labrador Retriever, is excited to be taking her first trip into the country. As they near the end of their long drive, they begin to see and smell signs of new animals and new adventures. Sally meets Molly, a Golden Retriever, and together they explore the sights and sounds of farm life. They sneak a drink of milk from Bessie the cow and share a snack with Penelope the pig. They play tug-of-war with Harriet the horse and take a ride on the tractor. They finish the day with a visit with the scarecrow and with a snack of some pie stolen off a windowsill. Feeling full, Sally and Molly decide to stretch out in the hammock. After all, "farming is hard work." Understated humor and Sally's exuberance at discovering new things makes this a wonderful addition to the Sally series. Readers will delight in the boldly colored and skillfully rendered woodblock illustrations that depict the agricultural landscape and its inhabitants. While the illustrations will not disappoint, readers may be a little startled to see woodblock prints of dogs sniffing each other's posteriors. A playful romp through the fields. (Picture book. 3-6)
