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.Read more ›
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.
