Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
Another silly adventure with Martha the talking dog. We enjoyed the first book, Martha Speaks by Susan Meddaugh and we've seen the show on PBS Kids. What makes this story fun is that children can sympathize with the poor dog's obvious misunderstanding and the unintentional consequences to her actions. The illustrations are fun and of course, the story ends happily.

This is another character that neither of us have ever really taken a liking to. Julia has played the Martha game on-line a few times but I think this is the first book we've read, if not then it's only the second.
For some reason Martha fails to resonate with either of us and this is so extreme that I don't even feel like rehashing the book for a review. I wonder why neither of us like Martha? She seems likable enough.....
Martha, the semi-anthropomorphic dog, acts like a dog and then tries to atone for a screwup like a little kid would—and after all seems lost, her efforts are for the best. A cute story kids will relate to and learn from (if you make a mistake, try to make it better), and it goes beyond the usual Martha backstory of the alphabet soup. Four stars.
