Summary

Summary

A follow-up children's storybook featuring Sally, the black Labrador dog. Sally the Labrador was introduced last year in Stephen Huneck's Sally Goes To The Beach (0 8109 4186 4). Now, in this equally charming follow-up, Sally takes a trip to the mountains, where she again encounters new friends, new smells, new games, and, best of all, new adventures.


Author Notes

Stephen Huneck is the author of My Dog's Brain, a humorous story that outlines the thought processes of the average dog. Featured are the good and bad hemispheres of a dog's brain fighting for control of such dog habits as drinking water, playing with socks, and taking up room in the bed. Any dog lover will immediately recognize the wisdom found in this book, which is filled with charming illustrations by the author.

Stephen Huneck is a painter and sculptor noted for his meticulous and delightful handcarved pieces. He often incorporates animals, including his own beloved pets, into his art.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The adventurous black lab from Sally Goes to the Beach heads to the range in Sally Goes to the Mountains by Stephen Huneck. Here she discovers an evasive rabbit, has a humorous exchange with an owl and takes a swim, and the final pages offer readers a surprise. Huneck's woodblock prints capture the rolling landscape and incorporate some abstract twists (such as a tree that grows dog food). (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Sally, the black Labrador, is back. Fans of Sally Goes to the Beach (Abrams, 2000) will recognize the large woodblock images that give the book a folk-art look. These prints rest on stark white backgrounds with the brief text below. The appearance is clean and crisp-perfect for group sharing. The unremarkable story tells about the canine's car trip to the mountains with her owner. At the end, readers learn that all of the creatures Sally encountered-a raccoon, a bear, rabbits, a moose, and more-were a dream, and when she wakes up, it's time for breakfast in the mountains. A beautifully illustrated picture book, easy enough for beginning readers.-Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
