"Little Sister" and "Big Sister," huh?

I prefer "Masha" and "Salia."

This is my second book about the White House dog and my favorite so far. I love that it made life in the white house sound somewhat normal. And that the first lady and president are like other parents. This was a fun book. Ages 4+

2.5 Finding the President’s family dog takes center stage in a fun new picture book in which an endearing array of dogs interview for the special job.

Sepertinya buku bergambar ini mengambil ide dari kisah Malia dan Sasha Obama, yang selama masa kampanye dijanjikan akan mendapat anjing peliharaan oleh orang tuanya. Tentu saja, acara mencari anjingnya tidak sampai pakai pasang plang sendiri seperti di buku ini. Dalam kehidupan nyata, the First Dog bernama Bo, bukan Lee.

Tentu saja, menjadi anjing di rumah orang nomor satu di AS tidak bisa sembarangan. Orang saja nggak bisa sembarangan masuk Gedung Putih, apalagi anjing, guk guk! So, Malia dan Sasha (eh Big Sister dan Little Sister) harus berpikir banyak saat memilih anjing-anjing yang berdatangan ke rumah mereka setelah mereka memasang pengumuman. Apakah si greyhound, rottweiler, terrier, golden retriever, atau pudel yang akan terpilih?? *lumayan juga mengenal jenis-jenis anjing...*
