Book Review - The Amazing Sparkey
About the Book
Do you have a dog for a pet? Do you think your dog is smart and special? Does your dog do funny or unusual things? This story is about Sparkey who is an amazing, wonder dog. Sparkey, dearly loved by his family, is truly unique. He could do arithmetic - both addition and subtraction. He could sing with his ears flapping in rhythm. He could "talk" entering into family conversations with strange sounds and an occasional bark. He could read. He would bring the daily newspaper into the house, open the paper, place his nose on the print and move his head from line to line. At times, he would laugh out loud as he read. At other times, it sounded as if he was crying when he read something sad. Sparkey enjoyed shopping for groceries in a supermarket. He would paw at those items he wanted the family to take home. He liked sports, particularly swimming. He would jump into the family's backyard pool and speed from one end to the other. Very proud of himself, he would clap his paws in approval of his achievement. Mysterious and strange things were happening in the Kelly home. No one in the family could explain the unusual happenings. It was weird. Was it the work of ghosts? Was it leprechauns? What was really going on? Things disappeared and reappeared. There were no clues. Working together as detectives, and with Sparkey's help, the Kelly family finally solved the mystery. Sparkey proved that he really was a wonder dog.
My Take on the Book
Food , clothes, and homework keep disappearing and reappearing in the house of the Kelly family. The family decides to become detectives and use their observation skills to locate the thief.
The Kelly family own a dog named Sparkey. The dog is talented in many ways from swimming, to "reading and doing math" and more. So the family decided to enlist Sparkey's help in locating the thief.
The mystery is solved by each family member as they observe their dog taking food, clothes, and homework. Of course he always brings back the clothes and homework, but the food is quickly digested with a smile on his face!
This is a cute story to share with your child.
