Description


Meet Barkus. Barkus is loyal. Barkus is generous. Barkus is family.

The exuberant Barkus and his lucky young owner whirl and twirl across the pages of this delightful pre-chapter book series from award-winning author Patricia MacLachlan. The accessible text is ideal for even the newest independent reader, while the warm, humorous story and energetic illustrations will appeal to picture book readers as well as advanced readers.

Praise For…


"A top pick for chapter book collections."-School Library Journal, starred review

"Will delight, in particular, child readers who are fond of animals."--Julie Danielson, Kirkus Reviews

"Will appeal to fans of the Henry and Mudge series as well as to the younger picture-book audience."-Kirkus Reviews

"The charm is infectious."--The New York Times

"Stories that will make everyone want a dog like Barkus."--Imagination Soup

"My new obsession: BARKUS! A perfect beginning chapter book to help independent readers to build confidence--with fun short, interconnected stories detailing the ebullient adventures of a girl and her dog. Boutavant imbues Barkus with a distinct (and precisely canine) personality--a raised ear here, a blissful leap there--and matches the cheerful stories with bright, sunny colors. Guaranteed to leave readers with a smile and longing for Book 2! And possibly, probably wanting a Barkus of their own."--Hannah DeCamp, Avid Bookshop

"Fans will be begging for more."-The Horn Book Magazine

"An upbeat collection of five stories that bridges picture book and chapter book terrain."- Publishers Weekly
