Praise for I Am Reading: Hocus-Pocus Hound

Children's Literature
The colorful cartoon-like illustrations and the simple, short chapters keep the story moving quickly for young readers.

School Library Journal
Gr 1–3
The illustrations are a good match for the text, adding lots of color, humor, and detail. More challenging vocabulary (e.g., "audience," "applause," "fidgeting") is repeated several times, providing good opportunities for practice.
