    (Note: I did not get the chance to read the first book in this series, but that wasn't a problem. Each book can be read as a stand-alone.) Barkus might appear to be an ordinary dog, but he packs more than a few surprises and brings delight where ever his paws pass by.

Each book can be read as a stand-alone.) Barkus might appear to be an ordinary dog, but he packs more than a few surprises and brings delight where ever his paws pass by. Five chapters appear in this book, and each one brings along a new, surprising adventure for Barkus and his best friend, a cat named Baby. Told from the owner's point of view—a young girl—it's impossible to predict what Barkus will be up to next. But one thing is guaranteed, the end result is not what the reader might expect it to be. Barkus comes across as an ordinary, loving dog. Even his very close friendship with a cat, which might raise an eyebrow or two, isn't completely out of the ordinary. After all, cats and dogs can get along in real life. The adventures also start out as usual events, ones which could happen to anyone—Barkus visits the vet, the neighbor gets a dog, and there's a festival at the park. Even when the adventure gets underway, it's nothing really far-fetched. Fun and entertaining, but seemingly based solidly in reality. Then, the surprise twists hit, subtle and yet making it clear that Barkus is anything but a normal dog. The text fits nicely to those readers, who are learning how to reader slightly larger stories on their own. While most of the words are very easy to identify, a few more difficult ones are sprinkled in to help expand the vocabulary but not enough to frustrate the reader. The illustrations support the story and the plot, while adding personality to Barkus and his friends along with a charming dash of humor. It makes for a gentle and fun read, while allowing those reader skills to grow and improve. I received a complimentary copy and found Barkus to be a wonderful dog!

    The second book in MacLachlan's beginning chapter book series about Barkus, a brown dog, and his family. In this one, Barkus must take medicine to clear up an ear infection, performs at the town's birthday picnic, rounds up all the farm animals with help from Nicky the cat, meets a new friend Millie, and weathers a storm. Fun and charming. Recommended for grades 2-4.

    Sweet stories. I just wish the format was different. It's not a typical picture book size, nor that of an early reader or chapter book. It is one of those odd sizes that doesn't fit naturally in any of those areas in my library. Quandary, but I love the stories nevertheless!

    This would be a good book for a child moving on from easy readers. I think the subject matter is good (a dog), and the stories are short and sweet. It would also make a good book to read at bedtime.

    So cute! Sweet and charming in the way of Charlie & Mouse, but featuring both cat and dog characters for fans of four-legged friends. So cute! Sweet and charming in the way of Charlie & Mouse, but featuring both cat and dog characters for fans of four-legged friends.
