This is the third book in the Smells Like Dog series. I purchased it for my fifth grade son. Once he picked up the first book in the series, he couldn’t put it down. This child is NOT a natural reader, so this alone speaks volumes. He loved the second and third books in this series just as much as the first. I read the first book with him and enjoyed it as well. The author makes nice use of quirky characters, an entertaining plot, and a great sense of humor to keep her readers turning page after page. My son said he thinks the author could easily write more books in this series because the ending of the third book didn’t wrap everything up neatly. He is hoping she will follow up with more books on Homer and Dog. We will definitely read more books by this author whether in this series or another. Check it out!

Smells Like Pirates (Smells Like Dog) Paperback – September 10, 2013 by Suzanne Selfors (Author) Review
My daughter read smells like dog in class and after that she was hooked on the series! She is in third grade, but reading on a higher level and this book was perfect for her. I often have trouble finding books at her reading level that does not have subject matter aimed at teenagers. This book was perfect for her! -Read Reviews-
My fourth grader loves the characters and the crazy situations they find themselves in. Funny & witty – would recommend for fourth & fifth graders who love adventure, dogs and a bit of the fantastical.
