Baxter: Lucy, I found you!
Lucy: Was I lost?

I found this at Booksale and was really interested on the writer's integration of social networking on a children's book. Very cute and silly! Hahaha! Kids will love this! The illustrator did a very great job. Thumbs up! :-)

My son really liked this one. However, it makes us parents realize how much electronics are a part of our lives and the lives of our children.

Though I LOL'd at a couple jokes, overall I think kids may not get a lot of this story. The illustrations are attractive but very busy. I'm not sure what age I could recommend this to as there is a disparity between the references and continuity and the relatively simple text is wide.

Baxter's friend Lucy is missing, and so he begins "Twoofing," the dog equivalent of "Tweeting," with all of the neighborhood pups, who find clues to her whereabouts while going about their daily routines.

Why do I persist with this series?

Something like eight pages long with minimal text, and still a chore to finish.

Odd little book about a bunch of dogs "twoofing" to find their lost pal. I thought the story was busy and disjointed. I guess the point is to introduce twitter to the younger set.
Polly
This is pretty lame. I think you need to be a Twitter enthusiast to find it enjoyable, and I'm not, nor are most children.
