After reading Tippy Lemmey, my eight-year-old decided he wanted a chow.
Tippy Lemmey is the only dog Leandra knows with two names, and Tippy Lemmey is a chow. Not just any chow, but a scary chow. This dog chases Leandra and her friends whenever they pass by his house. And his house is between them and their favorite hang-out spot.
Tippy Lemmey by Patricia C. McKissack is about how Leandra, Paul and Jeannie become friends with Tippy Lemmey – after some misunderstanding, a dangerous rescue, and some serious punishment.
Recommended for ages 5 to 9, depending upon their reading level.
