Perdita Whacknoodle is something else! Perdita is not your average dog. No, she has the ability to transmit her thoughts to one selected, young, human girl, Laura. She intends to make that girl much smarter by teaching her about the adventures of her very large, extended family. Perdita is not a kind, snuggly, warm-hearted dog. No, she is somewhat demanding and even irascible. She is convinced she is the smartest dog in the world. She is impatient with Laura's questions and is always right even when she twists facts and makes up new words. But her tales are rather remarkable. Much of the fun of this gem of a story is how Perdita gets so much confused and how Laura needs to try (mostly unsuccessfully) to set her straight. Each tale Perdita spins - and each word she creates - leaves the reader anxious to pose questions to the youngster with whom you are reading this book. Why did she do that? What really happened? What word do you think Perdita meant to use? I cannot wait to read this story with my grandchildren.
I've always had a dog ever since I was a child. My family and I would often try to guess what our dog was thinking about a particular subject. This was the source of much humor in our family. Jim Gibson has captured this imaginative perspective in his book about Perdita Not only is it highly entertaining, but it also gives us a persepctive on how we (humans) must look to someone whith a different perspective from ours - many life lessons to be learened here. Anyone with a pet should read this book.
Absolutely delightful from beginning to end! Imagine if our dogs had all those hysterical tales to tell...loved how perdition made up her own words to fit her stories....bought the next book right away....and I'm an adult! Writ more guys
I love this book. I love this book. Everyone should love this book. This book is about a "different" dog who transmits thought particles to her owner's brain. As she does so she tells the most ridiculous stories about her family and is a great book for all ages! READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a great book for kids and adults alike- I am a "dog person" and love the stories of Perdita Whacknoodle's crazy family! My favorite stories involve the adventures of Perdita's father, Par Whack,especially his run-ins with his nemisis Mr.Wimpy. This is a great, entertaining read-- I highly recommend it!
This is a great book for parents and grandparents who enjoy reading aloud to their children. What fun to read the Christmas stories to the little ones on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning. Excellent last minute gift!
