A New Dog in Town
Tippy Lemmey is no ordinary dog. Not only is he the only dog Leandra, Paul, and Jeannie have ever met with a first and a last name, he's a living, breathing monster!

This book is fantastic! It's an Aladdin Ready-for-Chapters volume, so it's suitable for second, third and fourth graders who aren't fully fluent, but there is so much more going on here than in your run-of-the-mill early reader that I hesitate to include it in that category.

Tippy Lemmey is a book my second graders would like to read. I also think there is some valuable lessons that can be discussed through this book. Themes of friendship, bravery, and responsibility could easily be topics for conversations.

This story takes place during the Korean war. Three friends are harassed by the new neighbors dog every time they ride their bikes. Its the only dog they know that has a first and last name (Tippy Lemey) Although the characters are black/african american it doesn't ever focus on the skin color aspect but instead focuses on the story. I loved it for kids who want to read a historically based novel but are younger readers.
Tippy Lemmey is a Ready-for-Chapter books story for beginning readers which will teach lessons on bravery, perseverance, friendship and patience. Though this book is great for beginning readers it will be enjoyable to upper grades as well. Pencil sketches for illustrations add to the text. The children in the book will learn that things are not always as they seem with the new bully in town Tippy Lemmey a chow puppy.
very fun to read about a dog that is nice but the main chracters think it is a very mean dog. a very good book and very dramatic.
