Space Dog and Roy

Overview

"The standard boy-and-his-dog tale takes on a new dimension...Roy's attempts to convert his new pet to the ways of this world are hilarious."— Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The standard boy-and-his-dog tale takes on a new, diverting dimension in the first volume of a series about a most unusual pooch ( Space Dog and the Pet Show is being released concurrently). Roy is a down-to-earth boy who longs for a pet dog to protect him from the school bully. His wish is granted when a canine literally drops into his life, crashing his spaceship into Roy's backyard. Space Dog--whose name is really Qrxztlqstet --comes from the planet Queekrgstet , where dogs lead anything but a dog's life. In order to hide his true identity from Roy's parents, Space Dog does his best to act like an Earth pet, but it isn't easy. He hates the thought of walking around naked--on four legs--and he refuses to eat dog food out of a dish on the floor. Space Dog has a delightfully sharp tongue, and a number of the scenes in which Roy attempts to convert his new pet to the ways of this world are hilarious. Offering a swiftly paced plot presented in large-print text and Oechsli's droll drawings,this is an ideal choice for reluctant readers. Ages 6-9. (Nov.)
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3Roy's wish for a dog comes true when an alien explorer who looks like a dog crash-lands in the backyard. The boy attempts to teach Space Dog to behave like a real canine, but he prefers pizza to dog food and would rather read the newspaper than fetch it. Flat writing and a thin plot add up to a forgettable effort. Full- and half-page black-and-white drawings break up the bland text.Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY
