Martha Calling

Martha Calling

Also available in:

Martha is a dog--a dog who can talk! In this story, Martha speaks up against the injustice of "No dogs allowed" signs and reminds humans that animals are part of the family.

Martha loves talking on the telephone. When she calls into a radio contest and wins a weekend getaway at the Come-On Inn, her family is ecstatic--until they realize dogs aren't allowed. Though they sneak her in, irrepressible Martha is not interested in staying hidden in the room. She thinks dogs should be able to have fun on vacation too. And when Martha speaks, people listen!

    "The bright cartoon-style art is incredibly clever, both in execution and in the way Meddaugh uses balloons to convey textual asides. A droll doggie delight that isn't just for the picture-book crowd." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
