Publisher's Description

Hypothesis: "It’s easier being a dog than being a human." This seems pretty safe to say, but the notion is put to the test in this funny, action-packed, full-color chapter book based on the PBS show Martha Speaks. When Carolina is turned into a dog, she finds out how irresistible mud, meat, and squirrels can be…and ends up at the shelter! Then T.D. volunteers to live as a dog for a day. Is it as easy at it looks? By the end, readers will not only have had a good laugh, they’ll know the difference between empathy and sympathy, manners and mannerisms, and more. A glossary and some fun activities round out this perspective-tweaking chapter book.

Author Bio

Susan Meddaugh was born and raised in Montclair, New Jersey. She graduated from Wheaton College, where she studied French literature and fine arts. After working briefly with an advertising agency in New York, she moved to Boston and worked at a publishing company for ten years, first as a designer, then art editor, and finally as art director. While there, she did the illustrations for Good Stones (Houghton Mifflin) by Anne Epstein, and then decided to strike out on her own as a freelance illustrator and creator of children's books. Since that time, Susan has written and illustrated many popular books for children, including Martha Speaks, which was chosen as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book for 1992. In 1998 she was awarded the New England Book Award, given by the New England Booksellers Association to recognize a body of work. Her work also was acknowledged with a New York Times Best Illustrated Award. She lives in Sherborn, Massachusetts.

"Because of the bold, colorful illustrations, familiarity of the characters, and readability of the texts, these titles should prove to be a big hit with the beginning-reader crowd."
