Quirky, amusing and original. We have read this countless times already * Review Reader, Lovereading 4 Kids * Those I've shared this [book] with delighted in Sean Taylor's narrator and fully endorsed his sentiments over his owner's humiliating behaviour. Kate Hindley gives the whole canine crew real personalities in her hilarious portrayals and I love the way she shows everything from their ground-level perspective. * Red Reading Hub * Easy-on-the-ear writing and amusing situations all show a doggie's point of view with clear understanding and clever humour while wittily stylized illustrations show plenty of girlie patterns in pretty colours contrasted with earthy coloured splashes in the doggy scenes of mayhem. For any child who's ever been embarrassed by an infantilizing, over demonstrative parent, this is the book. * Books for Keeps * the misdemeanors presented in this delightful story will have you laughing out loud and paying much attention from now on to the way in which you treat your pets!A delightful story with vibrant illustration that captures the essence of the words brilliantly and will have children as well as their grown-ups laughing out loud at the silliness of it all. * School Library Association * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

His owner is embarrassing him in front of all the other dogs, treating like he’s her baby. He just wants to be a normal dog. He wants to run around, chase after other dogs, splash in puddles, and have fun.
Don’t Call Me Choochie Pooh, is a lovely children’s picture book. The illustrations are divine. They are bright, bold and capture the heart of the story. I love the faces that the dog pulls every-time his owner does something he doesn’t like. You also get to read exactly how he feels with the added speech bubbles.
I think the plot is brilliant. I always cringe when I see celebrities carrying their little dogs in their handbags, dressing them up. Dogs are meant to be dogs, and shouldn’t be treated like that.
The one thing I would of loved to of seen in the book, was the dog’s name. There are other dogs in the book who are all given names. I also wasn’t sure whether the dog was male or female. I opted for male, as he looked like a male to me.
An intensely enjoyable book, that will have children laughing throughout.

At the park, he sees three other, bigger dogs he knows slightly. Despite being in the Handbag of Humiliation, Choochie is invited to play with the others. He’s having the time of his life when his owner starts in with the embarrassing talk because it’s time to go home. That’s when he gets his epiphany, thanks to his new friends. I don’t want to spoil the ending. This is a neat, well illustrated book that one can easily imagine a dog writing. Kids, especially those with dogs will like it a lot.
Lying on her posh puppy bed (with ALL the frills) she tells us she is NOT frizzly, fluffy or daft. The heart-shaped treats her owner gives her are embarrassing and being stuffed into a flowery hand-bag is just mortifying!!
She cringes at being called an "incy wincy cupcake" outside the supermarket and when her owner puckers up for a kiss, well, that just takes the (dog) biscuit!
Wonderfully illustrated, the pages are alive with colour and hilarious dog faces. Hindley's attention to detail will satisfy the beady eyed. Illustrated from a little dog's point of view, quirky details include the owners fluffy footwear, dog patterned clothing and dog-bone jewellery. The inner cover includes a collection of puppy portraits with this poor little pooch looking none too pleased in a variety of doggy outfits.
A satisfying and funny read-aloud, Don't Call Me Choochie Pooh! will bring plenty of smirks and giggles....While 'Choochie' wishes her owner wouldn't baby her so much, by the end of the story, she discovers that there are plenty of other owners guilty of the same pandering....
