By Deb HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 13, 2009
Format: Paperback
Two dog walkers were taking a whole passel of goofy looking somewhat grungy dogs in dire need of grooming. There was a poodle `n a pug, a dachshund and a sheepdog and three others with smiles on their faces because they knew they were heading for doggie heaven at Shampoodle. Clip, clip! The groomer stood in the doorway smiling and ready to welcome the crowd, but Shampoodle's kitty, who was peeking through a window, didn't look overly anxious to welcome the ragtag group. "Barking. Bouncing. Dogs trot in. Sniffing. Snuffling. Let's begin!" Watch out . . . here they come!

The dachshund pushed a button on the chair and a dog began to spin as if he were on the Tilt-A-Whirl. Splish, splash! The bubbles and the water began to fly as the groomers shampooed their shaking and splashing clients. Ooops, that gal got some water and bubbles in her eyes! "Rubbing. Patting. Fluffy towel. Tangling. Combing. Puppies howl." They were starting to look dandy, but all of a sudden . . . the puppies spotted a couple of the shop's "nosy kitties." "Dripping poodle. Pug half-styled. Soggy sheepdog. Running wild." Shampoodle was turning into a BIG mess. Seven is supposed to be a lucky number, but with seven dogs running wild in a shop it looked like it was going to be an unlucky day for everyone at Shampoodle!

This is an absolutely adorable and hysterical little story that your emergent reader is going to LOVE! The rhyming scheme makes it easier to decipher some of the more difficult words and if you have a reluctant reader the zany storyline and illustrations will pull him or her to the end with ease. The artwork and storyline compliment each other perfectly. The cover illustration of the poodle with a dollop of shampoo on his head says it all.

This story about dogs grooming gone crazy is delightful for my Kindergarteners. They enjoyed the story and laughed at the illustrations. It is a great book for our library for my emergent readers.

Prefect book for a child who is a bit past just starting to read. There are some larger words that they will have to break down. The story is really cute, flows nicely with rhyming words and is overall a fun book.

I checked this book out of our local library for my daughter and she fell in love with it. She calls it her Scooby Doo book. It has plenty of graphics to hold your little ones attention and tells a cute story. I highly recommend.

I thought the students would enjoy this book and since some of these students need more laughter in their homes they will take these books home after reading them in class.
