Abandoned . . . again!

I really enjoyed this book! More than I thought that I would! At first I tried to read this aloud to my kids who are 6 and 2. We tried for a couple of nights with me reading aloud. The lack of pictures, I think, is what lost them. They are just a little young for this length of a book, but it's one that I'm planning to save for them. So, I went ahead and finished the book myself. Right from the start, I loved Howe's usage of certain words that the dogs used to describe certain things. For instan ...more

Waggitt Again is another frolicking tale that extends the trail of success established by Waggitt’s Tale. Peter Howe has managed to craft another story that will entice its readers, but it took him most of the book to make that case.

Readers expecting another tale from the perspective of the dog will not be disappointed. The introduction of several Uprights (humans) as major characters in this edition takes an unexpected turn from the first work. Nevertheless, Howe ventures into territory seldom

This book is quite long (300 pages!) and I was afraid I would lose interest in Waggit, but it turns out, I really did. Waggit is really like most other dogs, except that he's very afraid of his home and has the attention span of a nitrogen dioxide molecule. Sure, he meets lots of other dogs, many of which I find much richer in character, but their names are not on the cover. No, this is the Waggit show, and any decent editor would have pointed this out those flaws. I did not read the original, s ...more

Not as good as the first. In this sequel, the author introduces an unusual human being who can communicate with the dogs. Not my kind of story. And not what I like to give children to read.

olang was so mean,if only he heard how his dad talks about him.
Reviewed for HarperCollins Children's Books...

This book just didn't grab me. First of all having dogs talking to each other is hard to get used to. It was disconcerting to have the dogs call squirrels: curlytails, humans: uprights, and cars: rollers and then in another conversation discuss the feelings and emotional problems of other dogs in direct human words. The story was ok with the kind woman, interaction among the dogs, and wanting to get home. I feel there was a lack of consistency in the

Waggit has been abandoned on a farm. He fought with a farm dog and ended up chained up. Every night, he walks back and forth with the rusty, old chain scraping against a rock. He finally breaks free and runs far a away and finds an unusual Upright. They decide to go to Waggit's old home. To the team in central park.

Reasons why I like this book-

Reason 1- The book has many dogs!

Reason 2- I couldn't stop reading.

Reason 3- I could imagine what was happening.

Reason 4- It put a smile on my face.
beautiful, full of very nice explaitive words and i loved it. i have read all threee of them and it is a nice follow up of the first waggit. touching and a very good read. i would , of course, reccomend it to children.
I like how it's from the dogs' point of view. It just frightening that people do this to animals. It was also annoying that he keeps thinking he's getting abandoned.
i loved this book i loved the one before it had a good ending but they left it open for a sequel which i like but its an all around good book
This is a good book. It is not one of my favorites but i really like this book if you like this book then get the last book:Waggit Forever
