Holly Webbin "Max, pikku karkulainen" (Karisto, 2010) on helppolukuinen, eläimistä pitäville alakoululaisille soveltuva tarina koiranpennusta, joka Molly-tytön kauhuksi eksyy kotoaan ja joutuu pulaan. Snif.

Kovin suuriin tai mielikuvituksellisiin seikkailuihin Max-koira ei joudu, mutta pienemmästä lukijasta auton töytäisemäksi tuleminen saattaa tuntua dramaattiselta ja surulliselta (eritoten kun tapahtumia kuvataan myös koiraansa ikävöivän Molly-tytön näkökulmasta). Kertomuksella on kuitenkin onn

I thought the part where the book explains the girl's feelings was really sad.
This book is about a girl who just got a new puppy. She names him Max. One day, while the girl was at school, Max found a butterfly in the house and barked at it. The girl's mom opens the window and lets it out. Max misses the girl so much that he sees the open window and goes outside. He searches for her and walks around for a while.
A car comes by the road and hits Max.
In the other story, this girl named Jasmine is

It was a little too simplistic for me but I think young girls would probably enjoy this book about a girl's search for her missing puppy. I did enjoy the ending.

Max gets lost & Molly is very upset. Fortunately, he's found after getting hit by a car. A bit grim but the kids will like it.

Molly saa oman koiran, Maxin, joka eräänä päivänä pääseekin karkuun. Max lähtee omasta mielestään etsimään Mollya, joka käy koulua, mutta joutuukin hukkateille ja auton töytäisemäksi. Paljon ehtii tapahtua, ennenkuin Max pääsee takaisin kotiin.

Holly Webbin helppolukuiset vinkkautuvat lähes itsestään kansien perusteella.

I read this with my daughter. A little stressful since Max is in some danger (won't say more), but it didn't give her nightmares (she was 7 at the time) or anything. Gives a bit of reality in an idealized setting.
