Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"A trio of humorous stories share a hilariously expressive dog hero. The adventures include going to the vet, finding a strange rock (a turtle) and taking a bath," noted PW. Ages 4-8. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The next time you want to curl up with your dogs, read them this book. You and your dogs will enjoy the three stories and their colorful illustrations. The stories are written in second person with your dog as the narrator. You, the reader, are in the stories too, as your dog's friend. The stories are funny because they poke fun at your dog. Each story tells of a routine part of a dog's life and makes readers aware of the dog's perspective of the human world. In the first story, the dog mistakes a trip to the vet for a walk. In the second story, the dog thinks a turtle is a mysterious rock; in the third story, the dog puts up a struggle when getting a flea bath. The colorful illustrations help tell the story and add humor. The subject of the illustrations is the dog and its reactions to the events in each tale. 2000, Houghton Mifflin Co, Ages 4 to 8.

In an amusing continuation of Three Stories You Can Read to Your Dog, Miller and Kelley have again teamed up with three brand new stories. They are all told from a dog's perspective and are meant to be read to your favorite dog. The dog's experiences are like those of their human counterparts. In the first story, the dog is tricked into going to the vet for a check up, and he sleeps all the way home after using up so much energy resisting the doctor. The second story relates to the dog's desire to play, but his human companion is otherwise engaged. An encounter with an unresponsive turtle and a joyful romp with his human companion ends with an exhausted but happy dog soundly napping. In the third story, the dog resists a bath that will rid him of fleas. Bath time brings about some amusing observations and, once itch free, the dog once again curls up to enjoy a snooze. Great illustrations that depict wonderful expressions on the dog's face coupled with engaging stories make this book a real winner. 2000, Houghton, Ages 7 to 9, $14.00. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
From the Publisher
"The witty, believable portrayal of canine thoughts and behavior will amuse readers, if not their pets. . . . The relatively simple text and larger type could land the book on beginning reader shelves or in the early chapter book area. In either location, children will be happy to find this funny book of dog stories."—Booklist (3/15/00) Booklist, ALA

"All in all, this is howling good fun."—School Library Journal (4/00) School Library Journal
