Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–The adventures of the lovable black Labrador continue. Huneck's bold and folksy woodcut prints convey a droll sense of humor and dog's-eye view of the world. In this tale, Sally plays chasing games with her friend, Bingo, the cat. When she is injured, her human rushes her to the vet. When she gets home she cuddles with Bingo to tell her about the veterinary escapade. Huneck manages to infuse some humor into this potentially traumatic episode. He also portrays the doctor visit in such a way that kids should feel reassured by it. Animal lovers and Sally's fans will appreciate this offering.–Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. The irrepressible canine star of three previous adventures (trips to the beach, farm, and mountains) now faces a dreaded trip to the vet. The brief text, narrated in black lab Sally's voice, relates how she fell over a tree stump and hurt herself while chasing her friend Bingo the cat. Her x-ray shows no broken bones, so Sally is allowed to go home and take her medicine. It's the oversize woodcut prints in Huneck's signature folk-art style that make the book memorable. In the clever pictures, humans are represented only by hands and feet and an occasional torso (no faces), and close-ups, such as one showing a tongue depressor approaching Sally's open mouth, allow kids to look right over the vet's shoulder, making Sally's experience more immediate. Burnt orange and yellow backgrounds (and an orange-colored Bingo) contrast nicely with Sally's black shape, which is speckled with fine white lines that give the illusion of hairs. It's an attractively designed tribute to vets that both dog lovers and Sally's fans will like. Julie Cummins

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.

The story itself is good...I am writing to say how honorable this company is because, even though the condition of the book was labeled 'very good,' it actually had three torn pages; and when I inquired about returning it because I did not consider the condition very good, they said they were sorry and credited the full price and shipping and yet told me to just keep the book
