Scout was a really interesting character, and I loved her from the start. How she would pick being late, and look all dirty, just to make a little girl happy. Aww! Plus she really does try her best, and she has a heart in the right place.
Though I didn’t like how the dogs treated Scout. They wouldn’t listen to her, nor would they believe her. And you guys are supposed to be the top dogs? Wow. Poor Scout, I just felt sorry for her. 🙁
I do have questions about how the world works. So dogs and humans work together? There is a school for puppies? Do the dogs and other pets stay with humans, or do they live on their own? How do the humans know what the dogs are doing? And several other questions. It was all quite unclear.
The sausage thief part was fun though. 😛 And I also liked how it was solved in the end. Of course I won’t spoil anything, but I think it was done well. Of course, I knew from the start who would be the one to unmask/find the thief, it is easy to figure that one out.
Wonderful illustrations by Sarah Horne! I didn’t even notice that part until I got home. I was like, ohhh this looks like Sarah Horne’s illustrations. searchesOhhh it is! cheers
All in all, a delightful little book, and I would have rated it higher if there was more explanation on the world and how it works.
