Abandoned . . . again!

Waggit misses the team of dogs who live in Central Park—his real family. He should have listened to them and never trusted the human. Now she's brought him to a faraway place and left him there.

But Waggit is determined to find his way back home and nothing is going to stop him . . . not chains, not cruel enemies, not anything. When Waggit comes face-t

I know I said I wasn’t going to be doing full reviews for the final two books, but since this one did improve in some aspects I will be going into a bit more detail than planned for this review.

I’m honestly not sure why this series was continued; one of the only things I did like about the first one is that it wrapped up well and had a conclusive ending. A sequel was not necessary.

I’m glad to say do think the writing slightly improved.
It still isn’t very good, but I can see that it has become s

I think that Waggit Again was a good book. It was better than the first one and also very different. The only thing was that there were some predictable events and there were some repeated ideas from the first book, but the book was still very good. It was a nice story about friendship and trust. In the beginning Waggit gets abandoned far away from his home in New York City and then meets a nice lady who helps him find his way back to the park. He is surprised at a lot of things that have change ...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

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

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

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.
Abandoned again, Waggit makes his way back to central park with two other "friends" in tow. There's a little bit of magic thrown into this story, but it was just as satisfying as the first.
I still love a good dog story! Which is good because I think there will be more to come.
