middle of the story Lost on the Dog is a great example of an adventurous text for children The author JC Greenburg begins the book with a short bio of each of the characters in this series of books which I thought was a great way to get students engaged in the text but also help them to have a better nderstanding of the character s traits and how they might effect the stories In this book Andrew Thud and Judy are set off on an adventure when they are accidentally shrunk by one of Andrew s inventions They find

themselves traveling throughout the body of the next door neighbors dog traveling throughout the body of the next door neighbors dog they try to make their way back to the shrinking machine before it s too late This a great read "aloud book The students love the humor the author gives but that it also has "book The students love the humor the author gives but that it also has real information about the things the characters encounter such as dust mites being trapped in a oily hair follicle or the mucus of the dog This has the students wanting to go fact check this information and see if it s true which I think is a great way to keep the readers engaged and wanting to listen to This book was brought by a student in my classroom who that it was a great book and the class would like it and she was right We have ordered books from this series for our classroom I think the humor and adventure in this book makes it s WOW book The idea of giving the students real information but also interesting is a great way to keep reading fun Definitely a good read for students in grades 2 5 because it does have some complex vocabulary They are very short chapter books but very fun to read This is a cute story similar to Honey I shrunk the Kids movie The main character is Andrew a boy inventor His sidekick is a pocket sized robot that his Origin (Robert Langdon, uncle game him His partner in adventure is Judy his cousin Andrew takes his new invention a machine that shrinks things outside and it accidentally is triggered shrinking Judy and Andrew who find themselves on Harley the dog There are lots of scientific information about dogs throughout the story and at the end of the book in an appendix There is also a list of references about microscopic insectsWhile I liked the story I didn t like these things about it This is a beginning chapter book that ends in a cliff hanger You must read the next book to see how it resolves This seems a bitnfair for a beginning reader The robot character is smart but baby talks misprouncing names etc This was a bit odd and annoying This book should appeal to 1st and 2nd graders who are moving into chapter books and who like science. Rab like eyelash mites Now they have to find their way back to the Atom Sucker and get nshrunk before it’s too lat. Ers are each given a short introduction before the book starts I think this will help the student develop a sense for the characters and see the character development throughout the book This books story line should be familiar to students and it is not complex The only part of the book students may need help figuring out is a digital robot like character that shrinks the other characters to a tiny size The books text is displayed in a way that is not confusing to children and the images just provide a source for the students to visualize what is going on I think this book is great for transitional readers especially if they love adventure One other fun part about this book is that it provides a true facts section at the end of the book for students to read and develop new knowledge on The premise is really interesting and the book series is a great way to present science to kids in an exciting fictionalized way The one thing that drives me nuts though is how Thudd always always speaks in baby talk I end p altering that when reading out loud to my kids There are several things that are frustrating about this book1 A key character is a robot The robot talks in weird fragments and words For example Andrew became Drewd and Judy became Oody This is just so
dumb and confusing robot is the one who tells Andrew and Judy interesting facts about science and confusing The robot is the one who tells Andrew and Judy interesting facts about science roll in stinky stuff Stinky stuff hide doggy smell While reading this book I changed Thudd s words in to normal English 2 The ending is REALLY bad because it is to be continued Literally It reminds me of a sitcom where you have to wait Inside the Asylum until next week to find out what is going to happen It is not a real ending It is very lazy writing not to mention a nasty marketing techniue I have read in reviews that this to be continued continuesntil Book 43 I found a few of the science facts nauseating The bit about mites being everywhere and eating our skin flakes made me itchy and I immediately went and changed the sheets on my bed The part about mites living in the follicles of our eyelashes was justgaah I nearly lost my lunch However the good news is that the story is the right pace and the right amount of excitement for a first or second grader Some of the science facts in the form of Robot Speak were really pretty interesting DS wants to read the next book so their vicious marketing scheme has worked On to book 2 sigh UPDATE I gave my son a choice between the next Andrew Lost book and a Humphrey the Hamster book and he chose Humphrey I m saved My six year old science loving son absolutely devours these books He likes to read but often chooses to play insteadthese books have changed that He is fascinated and delighted by them I love seeing him with his nose in a book A bit older but still funAndrew builds a shrink ray then accidentally shrinks himself and his cousin They end Plastic up on the neighbor dog Harley and fight to get off of him and. Drew and Judy find themselves lost on their neighbor’s dog where they encounter everything from colossal fleas to I must admitI have mixed feelings about this book I liked this book It was kind of fun Andrew accidentally shrinks himself his cousin and his robot buddy to insect size and they endp on a neighbor s dog The reader learns a ton about dogs and people their senses and information about skin However the book ends with a to be continued Really A to be continued Many early readers don t always have access to seuelsand this one ends on a cliff hanger of sorts What happens with young children who depend on The School Or Public school or public for books What if the library doesn t have the seuel Most early chapter book series wrap p a story and allow children to pretty much start anywhere in the series Does anyone know if all of the books in this series ends in this manner Done with my rantthe book is funjust know you need book 2 when you start book 1
