Martha Speaks: Martha and Skits Out West by Susan Meddaugh-ESSENTIAL

Meddaugh, Susan. Martha Speaks: Martha and Skits Out West. 96 pgs.  HMH Books, 2011.  $5.99.  Cover: “Martha’s family and Skits are going out west on vacation and Martha doesn’t want to be left behind.  But that cargo hold where dogs have to travel sounds scary.  Martha has to prove that she’s no scaredy-dog if she wants to go on the trip! When the family arrives in Montana, Martha is so excited to go on a cattle drive.  But Cookie the cowhand is a little suspicious of a talking dog, especially after Martha causes a stampede.  Can Martha, with Skit’s help, show Cookie that she has what it takes to be at home on the range?”  I liked the illustrations and the characters in this book.  The book was really funny at times.  I recommend it for a younger age.  It was a great book.  EL (K-3). ESSENTIAL.  Student Reviewer:  JL- age 8.
