Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
This informative photo essay introduces readers to the training, work, and home life of Sammy, a dog detective who is part of a K-9 team. After acquainting the reader with Andy, Sammy's partner and owner, the author describes their daily training routines which focus on four kinds of skills training-obedience, agility, search, and attack. At the end of the day when his police duties are finished, Sammy returns home with Andy where he lives a much different life-he fetches the newspaper, has baths, plays in the swimming pool, and goes trick-or-treating. Youngsters will enjoy this general introduction to police dog work, complete with simple descriptions and large, colorful photographs.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3A look at the police dog who's ranked "Number One" in the Western States Police Canine Association. Bare describes Sammy's training; his typical duties; his relationship with his officer, Andy; and even his "off-duty" life at home as Andy's family pet. Full-color photos show the canine dressed up for Halloween, playing with Andy's son in a swimming pool, and bringing in a "sometimes slobbery" morning newspaper. The approach is mostly straightforward, although the author does include bits of silly humor that many kids will love. ("How did Sammy learn to be a police dog? He couldn't read about it in a book, or on a computer," and the photo shows him wearing glasses looking at a book or studiously examining a computer screen.) The appealing subject matter, the many clear and colorful photos, and the succinct text make this a title that many children will enjoy. The sometimes arch humor gives the presentation a gee-whiz tone that is successful in conveying respect and admiration for this remarkable animal. In the age of the slick, this simple, straightforward, and thoroughly childlike approach is a breath of fresh air.Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
