Down Girl and Sit by Lucy Nolan
This is the first book in a hilarious series of early chapter books about two dogs who think their names are Down Girl and Sit because that is what their people always say to them. Down Girl and Sit spend their time in such pursuits as chasing squirrels and rolling in smelly things. Down Girl is very proud of herself for waking up her master every morning a full hour before his alarm clock goes off so that the alarm doesn’t frighten him! In this first book, Down Girl and Sit face a new enemy when Here Kitty Kitty moves into the neighborhood. Told from the perspective of Down Girl, this book is so funny and perfect for dog lovers just starting out with chapter books.
