Meet the Dogs of Bedlam Farm

Meet the Dogs of Bedlam Farm Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Bedlam Farm! Meet Rose, Izzy, Frieda, and Lenore, four dogs that work hard on the farm doing various jobs. They're good friends now, but it wasn't always this way.  Just as each dog has a different role on the farm, each has a unique story. 

Filled with his captivating photographs, bestselling author Jon Katz's heartwarming account of his dogs' lives on Bedlam Farm is unforgettable.

Review:

"In Katz's first book for children, illustrated with lively photos, the author explains how the four dogs (which have been the subject of several bestselling titles for adults) that live on his farm in upstate New York have distinct roles and responsibilities. Border collie Rose herds sheep, while another collie, Izzy, works outside the farm as a therapy dog ('He helps people feel better'). Frieda, a rottweiler and German shepherd mix, was wild before coming to the farm, and while her size and ground-shaking bark make her 'a bit scary,' she guards the farm against foxes and coyotes. Katz withholds black Lab Lenore's job until the end, repeating the question, 'But what is Lenore's job?' Lenore makes cameos in the other dogs' profiles, and readers will soon understand the role she plays: 'Lenore is not as quick as Rose, or as busy as Izzy, or as strong as Frieda. But she is a working dog. Her job is loving and accepting and having patience.' While the basic message feels a bit overemphasized, dog-loving readers will value the attention paid to their individual contributions. Ages 4 — 8. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
