Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- VAROOM! Here comes Amos, the old Irish setter who can make his couch move. It's hard to imagine the child who finishes reading this new title and not returning to the dog's previous escapades. The book owes everything to the expressive, eye-catching, animated aspects of the best comic-strip drawing. The story relies on episodes of camping shtick such as fishing, bears, and getting lost, and Seligson and Schneider make these adventures in the woods seem wonderful. Amos is no canine couch potato--he's a real winner. --Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, VA

From Kirkus Reviews

The lazy old red dog who never leaves his couch but has learned to make it ``VAROOM'' wherever he wants to go (most recently in Amos Ahoy!, 1990) is off on another ludicrous expedition with the accommodating Mr. and Mrs. Bobson. Tying his huge yellow sofa atop their car and packing an extra tent just for him, they set out. At first, trees are a problem, but Amos learns to maneuver in time to confront a surprised skunk and to chase a marauding bear, each after a string of hot dogs Amos has other plans for. A silly premise, but the resulting adventures continue to be engaging--especially as elaborated in Schneider's cartoon-style art, where Amos's relaxed, totally guileless interest in his own comfort has its own charm.

This is the only book in the 'Amos' series I didn't previously own. After finding it in zShops, I snatched it up immediately. What a find! If you like the 3 other 'Amos' books, you have to have this one, too. It's one of the best. Amos goes camping in the woods with his family (of course they strap his couch to the top of the car) and has quite an adventure. I am a real dog lover, and enjoy ALL the 'Amos' stories. I wish Susan would write another! She writes with the ability to appeal to children - while amusing us adults.

This is a really good book for small children. My 2+ year old granddaughter loved it. I had the original Amos book when my son was small. I was happy to find it and this one to share with my granddaughter.
