Martha Speaks: Canine Comics by Jamie White –ADVISABLE

White, Jamie Martha Speaks: Canine Comics 112 pgs. HMH Books for Young Readers, 2013. $8.99.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
Six Short stories about Martha the Dog –told in graphic novel format. In one adventure Martha accidentally gets downloaded into Alice’s computer. In another adventure Martha helps to solve a dog crime spree. In another Martha finds out that obstacle course's are harder than they look! Another story features Martha’s movie star dog crush and how she helps him to be a real off-screen hero.
Ok, I know I can be a bit overly complimentary on anything graphic novel, but this was truly an excellent adaptation from TV. The color are bright and vivid and the stories are fun and entertaining. Students who are a fan of Martha the Dog will adore this book!
