Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Norah Piehl
Comedienne and talk show host Joy Behar has written a second story about Max, a "part Shih Tzu, part cocker spaniel, and part poodle—a Sheetzucacapoopoo." In his latest adventure, Max, who has gotten in trouble at home once too often, heads to Doggy Day Care while his owner Evie is at school. At first, the spunky little dog is ignored or bullied by the other dogs and has a miserable time. He is particularly terrorized by a menacing big dog named Brutus. Before too long, though, the enterprising Max organizes the smaller dogs so that they can compete with the bigger dogs for food, toys, and the best napping spots. Max even defuses the resulting big dog/little dog tension and makes the day care a kinder, happier place, one where he is happier even than he is at home. There are no big surprises here, and the heavy-handed message—"We may be closer to the ground than you are, but that doesn't mean you can walk all over us"—detracts from the generally goofy tone. Gene Barretta's chaotic, colorful cartoon-style illustrations help contribute to the story's somewhat forced humor. Reviewer: Norah Piehl
Publishers Weekly

In this follow-up to 2006's SheetzuCacaPoopoo: My Kind of Dog, the mixed-breed, mischievous Max, who is driving his family crazy with his digging and barking, gets sent to doggy day care. Initially unhappy, Max tries his hand as a community organizer, uniting his fellow small dogs against the big bullies ("We deserve to eat at the same time as the big dogs, to nap in the sunny spots, and to get a crack at the ball," Max shouts from his soapbox, a stack of dog dishes). When the larger dogs push back, Max shows them how useful small dogs can be-scratching hard-to-reach itches, retrieving lost toys and serving as the occasional pillow ("I guess you're worth having around after all, little guy," says big dog Brutus). Though the story is slight, Behar's text has heart and charm-like hearing a story from a favorite if overexuberant aunt. Similarly, Barretta's characterizations can seem reminiscent of birthday party caricatures, but the artwork and story have plenty of energy. Ages 6-8. (Mar.)

PreS

Another celebrity author tries her hand at writing a children's book and produces a predictable, didactic, and overly cute story. Evie's pup is part Shih Tzu, part cocker spaniel, and part poodle, which makes him a SheetzuCacaPoopoo. Although the word itself may send preschoolers into giggle fits, the story starts out like many other tales of untrained pets that amuse themselves by wrecking the house. The family's solution is to send Max to Doggy Day Care while Evie is at school. On day one, he is bullied by Brutus. On day two, he organizes the small canines like himself to outsmart the bigger dogs. But on day three, Max convinces both sides to compromise and they play happily ever after. An assortment of Disney-type doggies illustrates this uninspired yarn. Kids who want a really animated story with lots of laughs should pick up Nick Bruel's Poor Puppy (Roaring Brook, 2007).-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

Kirkus Reviews
Setting a new standard for superficiality, this blander-than-bland follow-up to SheetzuCacaPoopoo: My Kind of Dog (2006) sends the perky mixed-breed (part Shih Tzu, part cocker spaniel, part poodle) protagonist to doggy day care, where he organizes the cowed little dogs and then tames the aggressive big dogs with sweet reason. Written in flat prose ("Sometimes he barked and disturbed the whole neighborhood"), Behar's predictable (not to mention psychologically unrealistic) text is paired to cutesy cartoon scenes centered on a shaggy little mutt whose anxiety about being in a new place is quickly transformed into smiling confidence as he goes nose-to-nose with a scowling bully and then at the end takes the lead in a triumphant doggy parade. Next to the exploits of other problem-solving pooches like Clifford or Susan Meddaugh's Martha, Max's new outing merits a quick burial in the backyard. (Picture book. 6-8)

    Cute, but stereotypical.

    I've read the first SheetzuCacaPoopoo and thought that the story plot for the sequel sounded interesting. It seems the author is short on ideas, because the conflict in the second book is pretty similar to the first. In the first book, Max meets up with a bunch of snobby purebred dogs that snub mixed-breeds. In this sequel Max meets up with a bunch of snobby big dogs that snub against little dogs. Predictably, Max bridges the gap and brings peace between the two feuding groups. One the things I found a little concerning is that there is not one nice big dog in this book. Every single big dog is portrayed as mean, including the stereotypical bully pit bull Brutus. As a dog lover of both big and small breeds, I found this troubling since it just reinforces dog stereotypes for younger children of Big Mean Dogs and Good Little Dogs. At least the first book had shown that the mixed breeds were not all angels in the beginning and that at least one purebred was friendly. The sequel is a lot less subtle, which I suspect is because Joy Behar herself confessed that this story is supposed to be a political allegory, with the larger breed dogs representing big mean Republicans. I highly doubt many 5-year-olds will make that connection on their own, Joy. Another thing I will mention is that Max is a little nastier in this book (not much, but noticeable). Max is sent to Doggy Daycare because he acts like an out of control brat. When he finds out he's no longer the center of attention like he is at home, he takes it out on his young owner by refusing to be affectionate, glaring at her from the foot of the bed. Worst of all, when Max rallies the little dogs to take back the daycare, his first strategy is to convince the little dogs to act just as mean as the big dogs were originally treating them. They rush to eat all the food first, jump on the big dogs' backs during playtime and steal one dog's favorite pillow and spot at nap time. It's only when this tactic predictably backfires that Max tries cooperation instead. Parents may be split on whether they find this appropriate or not for their children to read about, but I felt it was important enough to mention just in case. Overall, the story is cute enough with adorable artwork. I think it should be fine for most children older than 6. Though, I would suggest that parents discuss some of the issues mentioned above with their younger children, either during or after reading this to gauge their reaction. Some minor misconceptions may have to be addressed with some children.
