5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 1 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my very, very favorite Lulu book so far, which is saying a LOT. As usual with this series, it's absolutely hilarious, with lots of jokes for both kids and adults...and the ending actually made me tear up. (I'm not sure if I love it even more than LULU AND THE CAT IN THE BAG because it's better, or just because I'm a dog person rather than a cat person. But they're both fabulous books!)

I've read this one MANY times to my son already, I expect to read it many, many more, and I've enjoyed it just as much every time I've read it. A really lovely chapter book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for young dog lovers 24 May 2013
By Madigan McGillicuddy - Published on
Lulu and Mellie aren't just friends, they are best friends. Lulu's love for her menagerie of just about a dozen pets is once again very evident in this story about her family's trip to the ocean. This book isn't just sweet, it's super sweet! Lulu is just as cute and funny as ever in this latest offering in the Lulu series. While Lulu's mother wants to get plenty of reading done during their vacation, and Mellie's big project is to finish a homemade kite, Lulu decides to tackle the challenge of taming a stray dog who has been wrecking havoc at the seaside resort.

This book is unique in that large portions of the omniscient third-person narrative describe the thoughts and feelings of the dog from the sea. Large type and a generous amount of black and white illustrations make for a very easy, approachable read. There's a very dramatic ending too, sure to satisfy any dog-lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars For all pet lovers 8 Nov 2012
By The Stuff of Success - Published on
Lulu and the Dog from the Sea is a children's book by Hilary McKay. My daughter and I read this together and we were rooting for the Dog from the Sea from the moment we learned his story. The Dog from the Sea was scared, hungry, thirsty and misunderstood. He did everything he could to stay alive and away from the dog catchers. As a result, people hated him and feared him - until Lulu, her friend, and her family came along.

This is a story of friendship, unconditional love, trust and hope. I definitely give this book 5 of 5 stars.

I received this book from the author via netgalley - ebook. All opinions are mine.

Great story, my 6 year old loved it. Thought the curmudgeonly landlord could have been toned down a little bit though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great characters 26 Jan 2014
By Debnance at Readerbuzz - Published on
Lulu and her cousin go with Lulu’s parents rent a house for a vacation by the sea and encounter the Dog from the Sea. It’s a homeless dog who scavenges for food and water and who has alienated himself from all the residents by digging in their trash. Lulu and her cousin lose their hearts to this dog. You know what’s going to happen and you are glad it does.
