9781771471442: A Dog Day for Susan

Spencer and his family are expecting a visit from Great-Aunt Alice and her dog, Susan. All Spencer knows is that she’s dignified and graceful, with long, beautiful hair the dog, that is. Spencer and his own pup, Barney, are excited to have another dog to play with and decide to give her a chance. But it soon becomes clear that Susan is no regular dog. She eats cake off a china plate, takes scheduled naps, and needs an umbrella held over her in the rain.

Spencer and Barney decide to teach Susan how to be a real dog. With Barney as a role model, they take her to the off-leash dog park to develop skills like barking at buses, cyclists and squirrels, eating garbage, resisting grooming, and refusing to come when she’s called. Susan returns from the park covered in burrs, having shed her dignity and grace enough to fully embrace her inner dog. Mixed-media illustrations support the humorous text in this story about embracing who you are.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2-Spencer and his family can't wait for Great-Aunt Alice to visit next weekend! Or can they? Not only is she coming but she's also bringing her dog, Susan. Spencer and his dog, Barney, are not sure that Susan is their kind of dog. She has long, beautiful hair and is dignified and graceful. She eats her cake on a plate, sleeps all afternoon, and must have an umbrella over her head when she goes outside in the rain. The weekend is not easy for Spencer. He misses his favorite TV show because Susan must watch her show. A trip to the zoo is not possible because Susan will not be allowed inside. She even gets to have Spencer's juicy barbecued steak! Spencer and Barney decide to take action. They know that deep down inside there is a real dog just waiting to get out. Will their plan work? And if it does work, how will Great-Aunt Alice take the changes in her pet? This is a fun book for independent reading or as a read-aloud. The lengths to which Spencer and Barney go to unleash Susan's inner dog are entertaining-from running around to rolling in mud to eating garbage. The well-drawn and appealing illustrations, done in mixed media, enhance the story and bring the expressive canines to life. VERDICT You don't have to be a dog lover to enjoy this book.-Barbara Spiri, Southborough Library, MAα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
