Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"I want you to be a proper dog and bark only when burglars come," says Papa. That's just one of the exacting expectations her decorous owners have for Sally Dog Little in this lively, tongue-in-cheek tale. ("They never called her Sally, for short. The Littles were a formal family. Formal families are not fond of `for short.' ") Her congenial canine existence is upended when a ghost pirate and his dog waltz through the living room wall, and Sally Dog Little begins arfing and woofing at the apparitions only she can see. Richardson (After Hamelin) continues to poke lightheartedly at the prim and proper, as the two intruders "stretch out on the formal sofa where dogs were forbidden and pirates would never be encouraged." Mal‚part's (Theodore the Millipede) peppy watercolors create humorous caricatures of the stuffy family and its unwelcome guests, rounding out their quirkiness with white lips, pencil-thin limbs and pointed noses. The dachshund-esque Sally Dog Little, with her long, ever-dripping muzzle, hastens the departure of the quaint ghostly duo by digging up for them a long-buried treasure chest in the backyard. An unexpected and somewhat flat ending may leave readers wanting just a bit more from these entertainingly odd characters. Ages 4-7.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-The Littles' dachshund is expected to be a proper dog, quiet and obedient, which she is until one day when a ghost pirate and his canine appear. Sally Dog Little barks furiously, but since her family can't see the ghosts, they reprimand her sharply. That night she helps the visitors dig a deep hole in the backyard and they unearth a treasure chest that they had buried there years before. Since they won't need it, they leave it for Sally Dog, who retrieves a huge bone and surprises Twinkle Little when she wakes up in the morning. Colorful cartoonlike illustrations in watercolor complement the quirkiness. However, the story is ambiguous and ends abruptly, leaving readers confused and unsatisfied.
