Book Overview

Winner of the 2021 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award

Move over, Spot. . . . Spoofing classic primers, Max the Dog talks back to the book in a twist that will have fans of funny early readers howling.

See Max. Max is not a cat--Max is a dog. But much to Max's dismay, the book keeps instructing readers to see the cat. How can Max get through to the book that he is a DOG? In a trio of stories for beginning readers, author David LaRochelle introduces the excitable Max, who lets the book know in irresistibly emphatic dialogue that the text is not to his liking. Illustrator Mike Wohnoutka hilariously depicts the pup's reactions to the narrator and to the wacky cast of characters who upend Max's--and readers'--expectations as the three stories build to an immensely satisfying conclusion. Hooray, Max, hooray

   Great for pre-readers
I first bought See the Dog by the same author for my five-year old granddaughter and she declared it her favorite book ever. For Christmas, I bought her a See the Cat costume. And, of course, she also has a soft spot for Raymond's book. She has the ability to read most of the words on the left, and I'm sure she will soon be reading it herself.
   Engaging text for beginning readers!
The book was originally borrowed from the library. My six-year-old twins love reading it because it's so funny. If you enjoy reading, this book is for you.
   It's silly and fun
This book is silly and children will have a blast with it. Young readers, too, will find the bullet-riddled pages appealing. There is a typo in the last part of the story and the text doesn't fit into the talking bubble, so it's just a tad odd.
   Perfect, Funny, Clever Early Reading Book!
This is a terrific book for emerging readers, too. It is a true early reader that is witty, irreverent and has a very good sense of humor. My five-year-old granddaughter, who attends school in the Kirkwood neighborhood, has fallen in love with the book. She loved it, even though she didn't get to see it. I wish I could find more early readers, Mr. Rule told the judge.
   This teacher LOVES this book!
See the Cat by David LaRochelle and Mike Wohnoutka is a three-part story of love, loss and redemption. I highly recommend this book to teachers, librarians and dog lovers. Often, when a book is decodite, the storyline is dreadfully boring and requires very little, if any, inferential thinking. The book is a decodable, funny, and enjoyable read, Melissa Hubach said. I would love to see more of these books in libraries. As a writer, I think this would be great for a mini-lesson on revision. Max, the reluctant hero, takes his pencil and inserts one word - saving his own life! I think it would be appropriate to use this material in writing lessons from kindergarten through fifth grade. Tammy Faye Kilpatrick, 57, was sentenced to death by Judge Janet Grubb for killing her husband.
   It's a winner.
An adult picked it up in my home and read it loud. No children were present but both adults cracked wisecracked. The story is short, uses clear words, is witty and the illustrations are amazing. It's a winner, I can assure you of this.
   Great book for beginner readers.
I am helping my grandson with his studies from home. He was in kindergarten and could not read. This book was PERFECT for him to read alone. Easy to understand, the four-letter words are repeated several times. There are also some words that are great for learning. Both are perfect for his age. He was all over the place, giggling all the way through, and wanted to read it to everyone.
   Great book for a beginning reader!
My son absolutely loves the book. The book uses the sight words he's learning in school so he's very proud of himself for reading it all by himself. It's really funny, I heard belly laughs from him when he read the name of the baby cakes, Melissa said. NBC also plans a revival of "The Bob Newhart Show."
   Great story told with simple sight words
This was just what we needed, Mr. Dhaliwal said. All of the words are easy for my 4 year old to read without any help from a writer. My son was excited to read more because he wasn't stumbling over the non-sight words you find in "level 1" readers which is exactly what I was looking for. Major kudos to the author for encouraging young children to read a story told with a handful of words. Thanks for all the support!
   Great book!
Two thousand sixes and one hundred and fifty-two. Lots of laughs and we can't wait to read their other stories! nan
