SOUTH AFRICA (PRWEB) September 23, 2012
Dogs aren’t merely pets. To a loving guardian, a dog is part of the family. Most of the time, dogs bark for a multitude of reasons. Most helpfully, they bark as a warning. When danger approaches or a stranger strays too close, a dog’s bark may be the only clue. Being pack animals, dogs may also bark to signal other nearby canines or even out of boredom. Dogs can also bark when anxious, especially during long periods of their guardian’s absence, which is exactly the kind of barking that drives neighbors nuts.
In Lolly and the Noisemakers, author Dawn Morris tells the adventurous story of six little dogs that have formed a group after they are constantly told to shut up whenever every one of them barks and sets up a big noise when someone gets home. This carried on until one day; Lolly called them together and told them they all sounded terrible. She thought of a brilliant idea of forming a dog group and practicing their barking. Some sort of music form will be added to their barking to structure it.
Mickey will bark bass; Snoopy will do the tenor bits, Lolly herself the soprano pieces while Mitzi, Shareen and Dinky will take care of the chorus. Once they all had their different barking parts worked out, they practised them and people never shouted at them anymore. They put on a show at the local school, were invited to perform at the circus and go on a flight to the seaside to perform with them as well.
A simple, cute, funny story kids and dog owners alike will sure to love, Lolly and the Noisemakers wonderfully depicts dogs that constantly bark and their ability to create and transform into one dog group. An entertaining read from beginning to end, this book brings more to a rather typical dog story.
