An early chapter book for beginning readers which would also make for a good read aloud for preschoolers and kindergartners. The story has warmth and humor, and it's hard not to fall for Barkus and his owner. It's an engaging book. Heavily illustrated but with plenty of text so as not to look too...

Oh, Barkus! I can't wait to read more of these because they are the perfect early chapter book for readers not quite ready for the real deal. I will definitely be recommending this to my patrons! The illustrations are adorable, and it doesn't hurt that the main character is a redhead and there's...

Pretty adorable. I wish I had a life that included my dogs like this one does Barkus. The only problem with this book (for librarians) is where to put it. It's not in typical easy reader format and it has less pictures. Too many words for picture book. If libraries have a chapter book section it...
