Charlie the Ranch Dogby Ree Drummond
Synopses & Reviews
Scout, the lovable puppy of Puppy Diaries fame, stars in her own picture book
Poor Scout. She wants so much to make friends with the other dogs at the dog park. She tries all her best puppy tricks--splashing, playing keepaway--but the older dogs ignore her. At the end of the day, she still has only one friend: her favorite toy, Baby. But Scout is determined to win over the other dogs, and she will, even if she does it in her own special, goofy way.
Sisters Jill Abramson and Jane O'Connor have collaborated on this warm and funny picture book based on Jill's popular New York Times blog and book, Puppy Diaries, and told in Scout's charmingly clueless voice.
"A droopy-eyed basset hound is the star of the first children's book from Drummond, best known for her Pioneer Woman blog and subsequent books. Perhaps the most self-deluded ranch dog since Hank the Cowdog, Charlie introduces himself and Suzie, the younger, more energetic dog on Drummond's ranch. While lazy Charlie contemplates chasing a cow out of the yard, Suzie gets the job done. As Charlie sniffs under the porch steps for interlopers and finds none, Suzie gives chase to a squirrel she's found in the same spot. Charlie seems unaware of the impish chipmunk that deGroat, with characteristic humor, sneaks into each spread. Her paintings drolly portray the discrepancy between reality and Charlie's perceptions of his day, during which eating ('I can't be expected to do all this work on an empty stomach') and napping ('I must have accidentally closed my eyes for a few seconds') are high priorities. Adult readers will recognize in Charlie's voice the understated humor that has made Drummond's blog so successful; kids should find it irresistible. Ages 4 — 8.

He's a ranch dog. Breakfast is his life, especially when bacon is involved. Charlie has dangly ears, floppy skin, and big fat paws. And he loves living in the country. That's because he works like a dog...fixing fences, gardening, and helping his family out on the range.
Yep, it's all work, all the time for Charlie the ranch dog. In fact, he's probably working right now...
A ranch dog's work is never done!
Come along as Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, introduces us to her beloved short-legged pioneer dog named Charlie.
