writing this review of author Nicole Izmaylov s book Dart and the Squirrels Well From this point on it s going to be me DART Who better to tell you the story, the hidden truth about life with this weird and zany family than the dog living it ME Of course author and reviewer Fran Lewis has been kind enough to type it for me since I do not have access to a computer.How did this all happen I was a dog living at the local pound when these five people came in, looked us all over and chose me Imagine that After haggling and discussing it with the owner of the pound, the sale was made and I thought free WRONG My first stop was the vet s office I know humans hate checkups what about dogs Next, they sent me for a short stint to obedience school My owner, that s the Dad, did not like the trainer and the whole experience was totally aggravating and humiliating to me Then, they stuffed me into a care, put me in the back seat of their car and homeward bound So, how did I wind up in Charlie s classroom Find out by reading it yourself You will not believe what happens to the poor substitute teacher and where Charlie winds up I bet you re wondering what the story has to do with squirrels I am coming to it now After the short tornado that rocked the community and caused a tree to fall down in our living room this poor squirrel had nowhere else to go but into our lives This family thought it might be fun to adopt this pesky pet Wait until you see what happens next You will not believe it Someone comes to fix the hole in the house They name the poor squirrel Emilia Vuvuzela Scribe and they convince me that I am special But, Emilia likes to create mischief and annoy poor me all the time She messes with the chess set, eats Charlie s homework, and does everything in her power to get me poor Dart in trouble Trying to converse with a squirrel is impossible Getting blamed for eating the homework, scaring dear Emilia not fair Explaining myself fell on deaf human ears Poor me I get punished and placed outside to sleep What could be worse Banshee, that s one of the kids, loves talking to me as if she is starring in a Shakespearean play Then things began to change I love eating the scraps of the omelets that fall under the table But, I cannot live here any with this pesky miserable squirrel I formulate a plan that I hope will work First, I have to find a way to LEAVE Then I must drive this squirrels nuts and finally RUN Well part one almost works I get out and find my way to this man I called Beefy s house hoping to hang out there for a while What happens is hilarious and I do not want to ruin your fun So read it for yourself, you will be doubled over It s too funny But, my final step is to drive that squirrel crazy How I do it remains to be seen Just when I thought things could not get any worse along comes another squirrel who is definitely star struck with our Emilia This squirrel understands Canish and we begin to communicate with each other, as I understand his language too I definitely think he comes form another time period No matter how he tries I do not want to be friends or help him with his scheme to rescue dear Emilia The banter between the animals helps the reader enter the minds of these 2 adorable creatures with distinct personalities One who is trying to find his place with this family and other who wants in Will they team up to save Emilia from sadness and depression This squirrel ahs a voice that we hear as he expresses his feelings for Emilia and wants our Dart Onion to help him out But, will I The truth is I can t stand him and I really hate getting in trouble all the time To make matters worse the Dad finds me in my new home or hiding place He and Beefy argue and out I go back to where I came from What is really wrong with poor Emilia The kids are getting reading for school and Emilia seems sad The novelty of having a squirrel as a pet seems to have worn off As the holiday season approaches this family celebrates it in quite a unique way Imagine getting dressed in costumes, even me for a New Years Party How humiliating But, I am going to find a way to make my Santa outfit, yes you read it right, work for me and maybe help two squirrels Emilia wants out But, does she really want to leave or does she like the other squirrel Do they speak they same language What happens next will endear you to

    A world weary old dog lies at the back of his crate in the pound thinking no one will want to adopt a dog like him Then along comes the wild Scribe tribe, whose son, with all the panache of a charging rhino, bizarrely decides the animal has exactly the qualities a boy needs in a dog, and chooses him above all the endearing little puppies He promptly names him D Artagnan Whirligig Scribe, aka Dart Mr Scribe father pays the pound, pays the vet for clearance and pays the Happy Sunshine Obedien A world weary old dog lies at the back of his crate in the pound thinking no one will want to adopt a dog like him Then along comes the wild Scribe tribe, whose son, with all the panache of a charging rhino, bizarrely decides the animal has exactly the qualities a boy needs in a dog, and chooses him above all the endearing little puppies He promptly names him D Artagnan Whirligig Scribe, aka Dart Mr Scribe father pays the pound, pays the vet for clearance and pays the Happy Sunshine Obedience Fun owner fifty bucks for a measly three biscuits and a hand on his butt and off they all go Then the fun begins Dart seems to attract trouble wherever he goes, and he is especially mischievous at Show and Tell when Boy takes him to school But misadventure aside, and despite Dart s perception of matters being so very far removed from that of his human owners, Dart s life is pretty good Until, that is, a tornado comes along and uproots a tree which ends up inside the Scribe s house With it comes the bane of Dart s life a squirrel, promptly adopted and named Emilia Vuvuzela Scribe Dart finds it difficult to like Emilia She gets all the best food, what he thinks are his treats and most of the attention Although he does manage to steal the treats before she gets close enough to eat them But he still cannot like her Then he senses she needs help in an affair of the heart and he changes his opinion of her She doesn t seem so bad after all As a consequence his romantic side takes over and he quietly plots to make her happy.Dart is the narrator of the book and, amongst other things, treats us all to his cynical take on pet owners, and eloquently illustrates how our pets are probably not thinking what we think they are thinking at all.Dart and the Squirrels is intelligently written and Nicole Izmaylov s style is quite unique It s also lots of fun But what makes it exceptional is it was written when the author was in middle school Quite remarkable For me this is very deserving of 5 stars

    Dart, a grizzled old German Shepherd, is a great dog Not because he is a lovable, happy, sweet doggie poo that wants to jump and play and be with his pack.It s because he isn t any of those things Well, except the dog part And the grizzled old German Shepherd part, which is his own self description.It would be all okay with him if he was just left in the dog shelter, but this was not to be Not only is he burdened with being adopted, it s by a family, with kidsWell, maybe it ll work out Dart, a grizzled old German Shepherd, is a great dog Not because he is a lovable, happy, sweet doggie poo that wants to jump and play and be with his pack.It s because he isn t any of those things Well, except the dog part And the grizzled old German Shepherd part, which is his own self description.It would be all okay with him if he was just left in the dog shelter, but this was not to be Not only is he burdened with being adopted, it s by a family, with kidsWell, maybe it ll work out After all, there is much food to be had And the attention not so bad, once you got used to it.But the collarAnd the endless trips to school for Show and Tell And the tree that rudely entered the house, with the squirrel that rudely entered his life.Oh, no Make that two squirrels One that thinks he s a tree dwelling knight in shining, um, fur.So, what s a curmudgeonly old dog to do This was such a funny, sweet, and ingeniously original book We always hear of the Lassie type dogs the ones that would run and find help whenever Timmy fell down the well and couldn t climb out Dart seems the type that would just roll his eyes and say, Again This is, like, the third time this month So here s a rope I m going to go take a nap A story from the standpoint of a dog that brooks no unwanted company, but is neck deep in it anyway From his days as the Demon Farter to the New Year s Eve that changes lives, every page is funny, sometimes heartwarming, and always worth every word.Nice job, Ms Izmaylov

    As an both an author and book reviewer, I have had the opportunity to read several children s books I am also a mother, grandmother, and former elementary school teacher and for one reason or another Dart and the Squirrels didn t grab me like some of the other reviews indicated it would.The basic premise is good It is written from a dog s point of view which I imagine is quite creative and unique in and of itself Dart, the nickname for this somewhat older German Shepherd, has been adopted b As an both an author and book reviewer, I have had the opportunity to read several children s books I am also a mother, grandmother, and former elementary school teacher and for one reason or another Dart and the Squirrels didn t grab me like some of the other reviews indicated it would.The basic premise is good It is written from a dog s point of view which I imagine is quite creative and unique in and of itself Dart, the nickname for this somewhat older German Shepherd, has been adopted by the Scribe family Boy gets to pick dog and his two sisters get to choose his name The first choice is d Artagnan which is a mouthful for anyone reading this book aloud, so Dart is definitely a better shorter version and much easier to pronounce Boy who is in third grade takes Dart to school for Show Tell, which provides an interesting experience for both his fellow students and subsitute teacher Dad rushes to school to diffuse the situation.There is plenty of humor and even sarcasm in this children s book which helps explain my 3 star rating I m not so sure if this aspectthe sarcasmor use of the words fart or psycho is befitting the younger reader Perhaps this book is actually meant for an older reading audience looking for a little light humor Also, I m sure the illustrations were fareffective in the paperback edition, while my Kindle download did little to highlight them the way an author would prefer

    This book was entertaining, funny and a quick read but I am having difficulty figuring out what age level it is good for This book is a story about a dog named Dart that is adopted into the Scribe family The book is narrated by Dart and is comical, not only does he give his input on humans, he also discusses the story of two squirrels Emilia and Ferdinand that come into his life This book is good for many ages, I recommend it.
