US Kirkus Review » Huneck continues his popular series about Sally the black lab with this sixth entry in the series. When she's left at home, Sally wishes she could go off to school or a job like the other members of her family. In simple, first-person narration, she considers all the jobs she could do, including driving a school bus, teaching school, running for president and opening a restaurant. The names of quite a few occupations and fields of study are included, such as biologist and paleontologist. Huneck's droll sense of humor is evident in both text and illustrations when Sally imagines licking the plates clean in her restaurant or cleaning up after the elephants as a zookeeper. After thoughtful consideration, Sally decides her real job is taking care of her family, illustrated in a rather odd final spread by playing tug-of-war with a sock, with the son of the family on the other end of the sock. Though this is not the most dynamic of Sally's adventures, Huneck's woodblock print illustrations in his distinctive folk-art style are always as charming as Sally herself.
