Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Big dog Sally returns in her fifth book, here pondering a career. The text is a bit static as Sally considers one job after another—from biologist to farmer—but sly asides keep things moving, and the artwork is a playground for funny takes on possible jobs: Sally as a hip-hop star dons a rabbit suit and dances. Being a paleontologist intrigues her as well; after all, she is into bones. Huneck’s art, with colored pencil now added to familiar hand-carved, wood-block prints, has never looked better, and the large format is ideal for group reads. Preschool-Grade 2. --Ilene Cooper

Once again the inner workings of the Labrador brain are brought to light in Stephen Hunecks Labrador adventures Sally Gets a Job featuring the clever canine Sally as she ponders where her family goes every day. She muses that it might a good idea for a dog of her many talents to seek out employment herself, but what sort of job would be the right one for her? After thinking about many exciting possibilites from bus driver to political office she finally concludes that she has a pretty good job after all, looking after her family. As always the Sally adventure books are great fun to read (even if you don't have dogs to read them to) and the art suits the narrative very well. You can learn a lot from Labradors, particularly ones named Sally.

Stephen Huneck's black lab, "Sally," is on her way to iconic status in kids' literature. The 'Sally' books show a real understanding of kids by Mr. Huneck, who constructs uncluttered, colorful pictures, text that flows VERY easily and covers one concept at a time, and humor that's geared towards toddlers and young early readers. (Lately, I've found some nice picture books with strained writing; "Sally Gets a Job" is written exceptionally well.)

Huneck doesn't need "clever" grown-up oriented jokes or puns, he speaks directly to the child. If adults can still tap their child-like sensibilities, such as being open to new possibilities, an identification with the "outsider" (i.e., a child or a dog in an adult environment), and an appreciation of color and texture, they'll enjoy the Sally books along with their young audience.

The premise is simple: Sally the lab searched through the classifieds for a job. With humor and imaginination, Huneck turns this into an exploration of the "fit" between Sally and her job possibilities. On another level, the book touches on choices and preferences, multiple perspectives ones (e.g., decisions entail pluses and minuses) and the "Wizard of OZ" theme of self-acceptance, but Huneck always keeps his story at an age-appropriate level. Bottom line: A richly illustrated, imaginative, funny, and rewarding books that's fun to look at and fun to read.

Huneck signature illustrations use woodcuts and colorful, glossy, finishes. They're a superb combination of expansive color and recognizable shapes with patterns that impart texture and depth They're easy on the eyes, and are a welcome relief from the often sterile look of computed generated imagery.

Sally, the dog, spends a day imagining what it would be like if she gets a job. She thinks about many different jobs she could possibly have including archaeologist and life guard. In the end she decides that taking care of her human family is the job she was meant to do.

This book is a wonderful introduction to careers for children. There are many possibilities presented here, even ones that children might not think about right away such as a paleontologist and a zoo keeper. The story is written from the dog's perspective including how she would clean dishes (with her tongue) which makes it more quirky. Children would also find it very funny seeing a dog even think about trying to do some of these human jobs.

The illustrations are colorful woodcut prints.

I come from a family of dog lovers and the Sally books are hands down the best. They are beautifully illustrated and the story lines truly capture the thinking and behaviors of man's best friend. Stephen Huneck was a genius and it saddens me that he is no longer with us. I hope his friends and family know how much his stories have touched the lives of me and my children. Buy these books and share the joy and love of having a relationship with a pet with your children.

Stephen Huneck's SALLY GETS A JOB tells of Sally who wants to get the perfect job like the rest of her family. The only trouble is - Sally is a dog, and her talents range from digging to playing ball. There seems to be nothing in the want ads to address her talents - or is there? Maybe she can be a hip-hop star...
