Kate and Lucie are best friends, who love, love, love dogs, but live in apartment buildings where the rule is: NO DOGS ALLOWED. But thanks to their magic dog bone necklaces, instead of having dogs, they get to be dogs!
In this second book of the Ready, Set, Dogs! series, Kate and Lucie's class gets a substitute teacher who has the class going hog wild as he teaches about animal communication. At the same time, a girl in their class is making fun of them. What to do? As their funny and furry adventures continue, Kate and Lucie teach the class a thing or two about dogs and make a new friend in the process.
“This fun, quick read will have young dog lovers sitting up and begging for the next book in the series.”
—School Library Journal
“Frequent collaborators Calmenson and Cole begin the Ready Set, Dogs! series with a peppy story that takes the notion of dog-loving kids to the extreme. … Good-natured banter and silliness move the story along at a brisk pace.”
