My 9 year old daughter was sitting on the couch reading this book and every so often she would start giggling. Then she started laughing so hard I demanded to know what was so funny. I asked her to read it to me and every time she would start she couldn't finish because she would burst out laughing. I took the book from her and started to read it for myself and then I was doing the same thing. It is a great book that puts you in a silly, good mood. I also recommend Down Girl and Sit On The Road.
I tested this book out on my family and it was laugh out loud hysterical. This dog (Down Girl) is so optimistic on life and what her owner might feel. It gives dog owners a fun sense of what dogs are thinking when they have odd behaviors! Teachers, parents, dog owners, anyone should enjoy this story, it's a quick read too!
This is such a cute book. Telling the story from the dogs' points of view gives it a fresh and endearing perspective. The dogs and their masters and friends (and enemies) are amusingly presented by the illustrator whose work makes the text even more enjoyable. A wonderful gift idea for a dog-loving girl or boy.
