Down Girl and Sit are two dogs who are "smarter than squirrels." They know how to protect their masters from all the things that can go wrong in the neighborhood: they bark at paperboys and guard the garbage cans, and keep mischievous squirrels at bay. But when Here Kitty Kitty moves in next door, their daily routines are turned topsy-turvy. Filled with humor and adventure, this illustrated chapter book takes a look at life in the backyard from the well-intentioned but misguided viewpoint of man’s best friend.
The popular Down Girl and Sit stories were inspired by Lucy Nolan’s two setters, Nutmeg and Becky. The second book in the series, On the Road, recently won the Texas Bluebonnet Award, given to the children’s book that won the most votes from children in the Lone Star state.
Two dogs named Down Girl and Sit go out west with their owners and meet barking squirrels (prairie dogs), ugly dogs (coyotes), and a gasoline-powered bull (a truck). Told from a canine point of view, this fourth book in the Down Girl and Sit chapter book series by Texas Bluebonnet Award winner Lucy Nolan is filled with humor.
