Review by Booklist Reviews

This Martha Speaks volume includes six stories about Martha, the talking dog, adapted from the animated series on PBS Kids. Among the adventures, Martha accidentally downloads herself into Alice's laptop computer, innocently aids and abets some doggy crooks who steal meat from Karl the butcher, and competes with a robotic dog. Young readers who may not watch Martha on TV will find a cast picture at the beginning of the book to help identify the characters. Pages at the end of the book encourage kids to draw their own comics. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
