Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6?Since being attacked by a dog, Robin, 10, is afraid of them, but finding an abandoned mutt on the beach helps him overcome his fear. He wants to keep Friday but his mother, who runs a less-than-successful bed-and-breakfast business, insists that they turn him over to the RSPCA for seven days in case his owners call to claim him. In the meantime, Robin gets to know the new next-door neighbors?a cheerful, wildly nutty bunch of kids, one of whom is emotionally disturbed?and must deal with Dan, a bully. When Robin sees a notice about a lost dog that fits Friday's description, he is overcome with guilt and decides to notify the animal's rightful owners. Fortunately, it is a case of mistaken identity, and in the end Robin and his canine pal are able to stay together. This is a poignant novel about honesty and the complexities of friendship. All the characters are well drawn and Robin's sensitive nature will appeal to readers. The British coast setting and language may be difficult for some readers to identify with; nevertheless, the story is entertaining, funny, and thoughtful, and the characters have depth.?Ann M.

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-6. As she did in The Exiles (1993) and The Exiles at Home (1994), McKay tells a story springing from a cast of original, spontaneous characters, whose internal logic is consistent, though their actions may seem eccentric. Ten-year-old Robin's mother runs a bed and breakfast place by the seashore. Recovering from the emotional scars of a dog bite, Robin's trying to overcome his fear of dogs when a family moves in next door with four children and a mutt as ferocious as his name, Old Blanket. Many adventures quickly follow, with the plot strands becoming inextricably intertwined. The main thread involves Robin's determination to keep the dog that he finds nearly dead on the beach and nurses back to health. The sharply realized characters, fast-paced story, and witty dialogue make this English novel both distinctive and refreshing.

Format: Hardcover
This was a great book for readers in the grades 6-8. I read it for a summer packet report and i really hate to read. This book is one of my fav. books because it has some drama and stuff like that! It left you on the edge at some points of the book and the end was like a cliff hanger. But it was a great book and it all came to a great finish like all of her other books. If you want a good book that doesnt take long to read and is easy to read choose dog friday

It was a good book, but only OK. I would recommend it for children, but you may like it if you are older.
