"If we conferred with our furry friends,
Man to animal
Think of all the things we could discuss."
And then for those of us dog owners who have looked at our dog staring at us and ever wondered what our dog was thinking, the book Kibble Talk by Cynthia Port is for perfect you. Spirited 9-year-old Tawny suddenly realizes she has the ability to talk to dogs after eating doggie kibble following a dare from her best friend. She soon learns her own dog, a lovable, but demanding Great Dane named Dinky (what a great name for a Great Dane) has a secret desire to become a lap dog. Tawny helps him fulfill his wish by entering him in a local dog show. And what category does he enter? Well, of course, "Best Small Breed", which leads to hilarious results with plenty of laugh out loud moments. Perfect pacing for middle grade readers, good clean humor, and fun characters, especially the dogs. Did you know Saint Bernards tell the worst jokes? Suitable for dog lovers and non-dog lovers of all ages.
