About the Author:

ALINE ALEXANDER NEWMAN is a longtime contributor to National Geographic Kids magazine and a former teacher. She's a life-long animal lover who has written over 50 stories about animals from dogs to cheetahs to dolphins. Her previous books for National Geographic include two chapter books: Ape Escapes! And more True Stories of Animals Behaving Badly and Animal Superstars! And More True Stories of Animals with Amazing Talents.

DR. GARY WEITZMAN, veterinarian and President of the San Diego Humane Society, is the former CEO of the Washington Animal Rescue League, and an expert on the public radio show The Animal House.

From Booklist:

Rye rant ray rone. What’s that you’re saying? Oh, you want a bone! If you had trouble deciphering that dogspeak, you’re in luck: this is a guide to decoding canine sounds and body language, from butt sniffing to pricked ears. For instance, “dry shaking” could mean your dog is trying to calm itself down. Belly up? That’s a submissive pose, and as you might have guessed, it means “pet me, pet me.” Grass eating is apparently normal, kind of like chomping on a salad. There’s one behavior per spread, and with 150-plus pages, that’s a lot of insight into your dog’s psyche. But it’s not the in-depth, accessible paragraphs that will catch your attention first; no, it’s the all-out adorableness of sad eyes, floppy ears, and upturned tummies appearing in more than 100 photos. Rounding things out are quizzes, safety tips, resources, and a dog breed guide, plus an intro from veterinarian Dr. Gary, one of the coauthors. It’s a good thing kids can turn to this book for help; after all, you’ve got to be able to understand your best friend. Grades 4-7. --Ann Kelley
