Two Dogs in a Trench Coat go to School, written by Julie Falatko, reviewed by Katy Golden
Straight Talk for Librarians: "Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Go to School" is a laugh-out-loud, easily accessible illustrated chapter book. The expressive illustrations and short chapters will keep even the more reluctant reader engaged, along with the dogs' hilarious hijinks and food-related jokes. From eagerly inhaling their "daily midday meat pile" in the cafeteria to catching a Frisbee in their mouths during gym class, the two dogs tackle school with enthusiasm, and their unflappable energy drives the reader forward. Hand this to fans of Stick Dog that are looking for more of a challenge. In the words of Waldo, "You're going to be so amazed. It's going to be amazing."
