I've been on a bit of a Hilary McKay binge of late, and while this wasn't quiiiiite as good as her Casson family series, this was still hilarious and full of memorable characters (as all her books are), and I will definitely be reading the other two books in the trilogy. This would be a great readaloud for a family, as it's entertaining for adults and kids alike.

The book opened slow, and I almost stopped reading it. Then a family with 4 active, independent kids moved in next door, and the book became a fun read.

I like that kids from 6 to 11 can see themselves in this story. The 3 boys aged 10-11 include one bully. The 6 and 11-yr-old girls very much hold their own. A boy (8) is smart and assertive -- and likely on the autism spectrum.
Dog Friday is the 1st book of a trilogy.
I just finished the 2nd book, The Amber Cat, and loved hearing more about Robin's parents, and Sun Dance.
The first 7 chapters were warm but slow. The rest is suspenseful, poignant, amazing.
