KIRKUS REVIEW

Rosie is a little dog with a giant appetite. Whether she’s “cleaning up” a cereal spill or proudly knocking over the trash can and scrounging through the contents, she has one thing on her mind: food. But, her family loves her, even when she’s a “bad dog.” Duff and Jessie, the children in Rosie’s family, are crazy about their little dog, and Rosie returns the love. Voigt’s dog’s-eye view gives words to Rosie’s incessant barking—“Eat!” “Nag!” “Breakfast!”—and the exclamation points that punctuate each bark let the reader know who’s in charge. Short, snappy sentences add to the sense of yippy little dog. Smith’s lively color illustrations show Rosie, the big-headed (and big-hearted) Jack Russell terrier, with all the emotions and expressions befitting a dog of her energy and intelligence. The repeated words, familiar situations, and frequent illustrations will lead Rosie to many new readers, while entertaining experienced readers, too. For dog lovers of all ages. Good dog, Rosie! (Fiction. 6-9)
