This lovable new series introduces a little dog with a GIANT personality!
Fenway is an excitable and endlessly energetic Jack Russell terrier. He lives in the city with Food Lady, Fetch Man, and—of course—his beloved short human and best-friend-in-the-world, Hattie.
But when his family moves to the suburbs, Fenway faces a world of changes. He's pretty pleased with the huge Dog Park behind his new home, but he's not so happy about the Evil Squirrels that taunt him from the trees, the super-slippery Wicked Floor in the Eating Room, and the changes that have come over Hattie lately. Rather than playing with Fenway, she seems more interested in her new short human friend, Angel, and learning to play baseball. His friends in the Dog Park next door say Hattie is outgrowing him, but that can't be right. And he's going to prove it!
Get a dog's-eye view of the world in this heartwarming, enthusiastic "tail" about two best friends.

    This perky, pet-centered tale, first in a planned series, takes readers inside the head of Fenway, an energetic and perpetually hopeful Jack Russell terrier with a deep love for food, intense hatred of squirrels, and undying adoration of his “small human,” Hattie. When the family moves from the city to the suburbs, the adjustment is hard for Fenway: there’s a slippery new “Wicked Floor” to traverse and a dog park without any dogs (i.e., the backyard). Worst of all, Hattie seems more interested in friends and softball than games of fetch. “Nothing can bring a short human back,” the dogs next door explain, but Fenway is determined not to lose Hattie, even if that means learning some new tricks. Coe, making her children’s book debut, describes the trauma of the move and Hattie growing up through the excitable dog’s eyes, nose, and playful vocabulary (thunder is “boom-kabooms” and Hattie’s parents are “Fetch Man” and “Food Lady”) turning Fenway’s everyday routines into a fun, fresh frolic that animal-loving kids are sure to enjoy. Ages 8–12. Agent: Marietta Zacker, Nancy Gallt Literary Agency.

    Fenway, a young, exuberant Jack Russell terrier, is having lots of trouble getting his "short human," Hattie, to behave. The family's move from the city to the suburbs just complicates matters. First, there is the issue of the very slippery kitchen floor. After losing his footing the first time, Fenway refuses to venture out there again, even if it is the Eating Place. The backyard, which he perceives as an unpopulated Dog Park, is another issue, since nasty squirrels scamper through and Hattie climbs into a treehouse--squirrel house?--that he can't reach. The two neighbors next door, a couple of jaded dogs, don't improve things. Hattie is reluctantly learning to throw and catch a white ball in a big, fat glove and for some reason doesn't welcome his enthusiastic help. And finally, there is the issue of the big group of dogs Hattie keeps taking him to visit, with whom he must learn to sit in order to receive treats. Fenway's first-person point of view is appropriately frisky, even slightly berserk at times. But the jokes are used and then reused and begin to turn from funny into tedious repetition. More books in the series are promised; here's hoping some new doggy dilemmas will emerge. Young dog lovers will enjoy Fenway's point of view, even if his eagerness wears a bit thin. (Fiction. 8-10)

    Gr 4-6-Fenway narrates the story of his move with Hattie, Food Lady, and Fetch Man from an apartment near a community dog park to a house with its own dog park. Fenway is a Jack Russell terrier who is so fiercely protective of his girl, Hattie, that he jumps, lunges, and barks furiously and incessantly in the presence of delivery men, squirrels, and even the muffins the new neighbor brings over. The hard, glistening floor in the Eating Place "terrorizes" him, and he whines with a "pathetic face" until Hattie brings him food to the carpeted hallway. Fenway is sad when Hattie abandons him to play with her new neighbor and when he's put in a room behind a Gate after he breaks his leash to protect Hattie from the Truck Man with ice cream. Eventually, his people take him to a place where he learns to stay, lie down, and leave a toy. Readers will relate to Fenway's impulsivity and delight in descriptions from his dog's-eye view. Teachers and adults will appreciate generous sprinklings of rich vocabulary. Fenway's first-doggie perspective is not as complex as McKinley's in Avi's The Good Dog (Atheneum, 2001) or Squirrel's in Ann M. Martin's A Dogs Life: Autobiography of a Stray (Scholastic, 2005), and the tight in-home focus of this story wears a little thin. But dog lovers will enjoy spending some time with Fenway as he adjusts to his new home in the suburbs. VERDICT A solid addition to larger collections.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
