Reviewed by Cayden (age 5-½) and Mom for Reader Views (03/10)

In “Sitting Duck,” puppy Anabel comes to visit and Max and the gang need to babysit and keep her from getting into trouble. Knowing that it is going to be a difficult task, most of the gang makes a run for it before she even gets there. Taking care of Anabel is a lot of work.

Cayden: “Why did they all run in the beginning of the book? Taking care of a puppy can’t be that hard! They did a lot of fun things like play with a ball and read books. I liked when they bounced on the trampoline. They went super high but the puppy got stuck in a tree. That wasn’t good. My favorite part was when they all tried to help her and all landed on the trampoline. That was a funny picture!”

Parent’s comments:

“Sitting Duck” by Jackie Urbanovic was a very action-packed book. It kind of reminded me of our house, running and running from one activity to the next. My son and I enjoyed the humorous illustrations; some of them had him laughing out loud!
