Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5^-9. Illustrated with Bare's own clear color photographs, this informative photo-essay chronicles the work and home life of an especially personable police dog named Sammy, part of the K-9 team in Modesto, California. The simple, accessible text describes Sammy's daily duties--from searching for criminals to finding missing persons, from giving demonstrations for school groups to controlling crowds. Amusing photographs of Sammy surrounded by his many trophies, wearing glasses, staring at a computer, and dressed for Halloween produce a lively portrait of a very special dog. Because each line of text is centered on the page, the layout seems too symmetrical in places, giving the book an amateurish feel. But Sammy's "personality" still shines through, making this book both entertaining and informative. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson"
