Down Girl and Sit are two dog pals who think those are their names, since that’s what their humans are always calling them. These dog’s-eye-view chapter books for the first to third grade set are filled with humor and reading-level-appropriate vocabulary, to build reading confidence and skills.
Down Girl spends her days protecting her master, Rruff, from Here Kitty Kitty and the neighborhood squirrels. But when Rruff invites Down Girl on a road trip, Down Girl knows she’s in for an even bigger adventure.
With her best friend, Sit, along for the ride, the fun really begins. These two dogs never know quite where they’re going, but one thing’s certain. When they hop into a car, they’re sure to drive everyone crazy!
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.
