Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–Narrated from a dogs point of view, this easy chapter book covers the hilarious antics of two canine friends who puzzle through and explain life with their masters. Even though this title is a follow-up to Down Girl and Sit: Smarter Than Squirrels (Marshall Cavendish, 2004), it stands alone. In one of the four episodes, the pups enjoy a car ride as their ticket to see the world. In another, while camping with her human, Down Girl turns into Wild Dog and stalks squirrels, surmising that they may be the creatures she had chased away from her home in the city. Then, she runs when a rabbit (What kind of squirrel was this?) twitches its nose. A small black-and-white illustration appears on almost every page, supporting the texts humor. Anyone who has owned a dog can relate to these tales. Children will be delightfully challenged by the perspective and ask for more.–Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. This charming, hilarious follow-up to Smarter than Squirrels (2004) portrays the further adventures of canine protagonist-narrator Down Girl. A road trip to the beach with her owner, whom she calls Rruff; her best dog friend, Sit; and Sit's owner proves unexpectedly eventful as the dogs find themselves alone in a moving car, and curious Down Girl gets her nose pinched by a crab. A camping trip brings more excitement: singing at the campfire, eating hotdogs, and chasing squirrels. Even a car ride to the Lady in the White Coat for a nail trim isn't too bad: Down Girl gets a cookie and sees her despised feline neighbor, Here Kitty Kitty, contained in a carrier. Nolan's simple, peppy text is fun to read, and kids will enjoy Down Girl's escapades as well as her endearing naivete, which is visualized in witty, black-and-white art. Shelle Rosenfeld

This is an adorable book from the first sentence in which the lead canine character declares "My name is Down Girl".

My young reader doesn't always like it when I tell her it's time to read, but she can't wait to get back to this book. She reads it out loud to me and we laugh together. Any book that can encourage a desire to read is a winner in my eyes!

I will be looking for other stories from this author!

My seven-year-old triplet grandsons are hard to read to. They really would rather be playing computer games. But they roared with laughter with this book and the others by Lucy Nolan. They especially loved the bit where the dogs drive the car. I can actually entice them away from the computer and into my lap for a few minutes when I offer them stories of Down Girl and Sit. Since listening, they have decided that our Irish setter puppy, Buddy, really thinks his name is "Nobuddy".

This is the 2nd book Lucy Nolan has written from the viewpoint of a dog "Down Girl". It is just as funny & clever as the first. A very enjoyable read-aloud for all ages. You will laugh.

My kids really enjoyed this book. They liked that it was read on my kindle device. I find it very cute to get the story from the animals perspective.

My granddaughter is a 2nd grader and she read this book to me. We laughed at the book. The chapters are more like short stories of the adventures of a dog and his owner when they go on short trips, the vets. etc. We read a chapter at a time for her reading requirement at school.

I like these stories because they are funny. Down girl is funny because she doesn't understand anything going on. You should read this book. This was written by a 5 year old.
