    1 thought on “Treat

    1. I love that dog. That is a good dog. Mary Sullivan really gets at the essence of dog/child relationships. Don't miss Ball by the same author.Library copy

    2. Cute, but it lacked the magic of Ball. While every pet owner knows the struggle of a cat or dog who's bound and determined to get people food (and has probably had a discussion with a small person about teasing said pet with food you don't intend to share!), I feel like the gag went on a little too long here. Some of the pages - especially during the dream sequence - were too busy, and I found myself just wanting to skip them.That said, the illustrations were really cute, and I just wanted to gi [...]

    3. I'm a fan of one word stories, especially to use in the classroom to show kids the power of how a word is used, storytelling, and illustrations. I loved Ball, and this next story from Mary Sullivan, Treat, is a delight.

    4. Mary Sullivan's picture book Ball is a favorite of mine, so I was elated to discover she had another one-word story, Treat, and it is just as charming as her first. I especially love that both Ball and Treat say "Word and Pictures by Mary Sullivan." That just makes me giggle every time I see it. As you would imagine, Treat is the story of a highly food-motivated dog who thinks of nothing but where he can find his next snack. As he begs several different members of his family and is teased mercil [...]

    5. You could work on expression with this book. It has one word and a dog's many ways of asking for a "treat." It got a bit repetitive but the KA students liked it as a read aloud.

    6. With a single word, this story conveys a multitude of emotions, desires, responses, and reactions. The illustrations are cartoonish and the puppy is adorable, reminding us of our own treat-motivated hound dog. Our oldest and I read this book while browsing through The General Store at Kimball Farm in Westford, MA during our late summer vacation trip to go back home. We really enjoyed the book and contemplated purchasing it, even though it would only be for the comparison to our beloved pup.I agr [...]

    7. I loved this story, which is told using only one word. It could be useful in the classroom to help students understand how graphical elements convey meaning as the font changes often. The illustrations could also help students look critically at how authors and illustrators convey the idea that the character is dreaming. Plus, the way the dog is searching long and hard for a treat reminds me of my dogs!

    8. Cute idea, but it went on wayyy too long. I think kids would get bored with this one. Or would want to jump to the end. At times it's even visually a bit much to try to analyze what's happening in each picture/part.Yes, I know many dogs like this one, so I think people will relate/connect. But again, it's just too much for me.

    9. I'm trying (and failing) not to hold this books "one word" gimmick against it, but man, I really don't like that archetype of kids books. I understand the appeal for kids to read on their OWN, and lord knows I love plenty of sparcely-worded or wordless comics meant for adults, but as someone whose job is basically "reading books out loud to toddlers for money", nothing sucks more than reading a book that only uses one word. Even wordless books feel like they leave space to describe what's happen [...]

    10. Another adorable doggy book by Mary Sullivan! Much like "Frankie" and "Ball," "Treat" took the reader to the depths of despair (why won't anyone give this fat Frenchie a treat!??!) which was really quite sad, when you consider that this is probably just what your dog thinks about all day it's very guilt-inducing. But of course the book turned around at the end when someone finally did give him a treat (a huge treat!, and he was happy again!

    11. With very simple text but illustrations that say it all, this fun and entertaining picture book follows a dog who just wants a treat. With graphic novel-style illustrations, the reader is taken systematically through the plot, which textually and thematically consists of just one thing: "Treat". ALthough it may not be the right book for a read-aloud, the simplicity, hilarious illustrations, and smaller size is perfect for any age child to curl up and read to themselves.

    12. From the creator behind the hilarious Ball, comes another dog-delight. Treat follows the same winning formula as the first, utilizing a single word throughout in various fonts, sizes, and colours to create a story. In this case, the little dog is desperate for a treat, she dreams about treats, she begs for treats, but no one in the family gives her one. Fortunately, in a rather sweet conclusion, it all ends well for the dog. Sullivan's cartoonish style is so expressive that the story could be un [...]

    13. Similarly to "Ball" by Mary Sullivan, this book only uses the word "treat" and pictures to convey a story. I like the repetition of "treat" throughout but I personally think this story is not as clear.

    14. While repetitive (the word "treat" is now weird to me), it completely captures the one-mindedness that dogs seem to have when it comes to treats. I always love her art. Gosh darn it, it is too cute to handle!

    15. In the story there is a new dog in town and all that puppy is after is a treat. I would give this book one out of five stars since it is appropriate for emerging readers but it lacks a lot of dimension.

    16. This I believe was the very first book that I have read where the only text in the book is one word, treat. I felt very sad for the poor dog throughout the book because all he wanted was a treat and no one would give him one. The style of the book reminded me of a graphic novel layout and the illustrations as well. For being such a simple book, I loved everything about it.

    17. I read this book at an outreach event involving kids and dogs. Like five dogs tried to jump into my lap while reading this book.

    18. Not quite wordless, but there's only one word in the whole book! Great book to practice reading with inflection.

    19. Very Very cute! Loved the illustrations and the story line is so true! My dog acts just like this over his favorite word "TREAT!" Kids would enjoy this and parent will get a good chuckle. Very fun!

    20. I love this book! Anyone with a food-motivated dog will love it. Just one word in the book, but it captures dogs so well. Gifted illustrator/storyteller!

    21. This book is a fun read to take a break, but it isn't very useful in a classroom setting. Yes, the dog is cute and it's a funny book, ut the only word in the entire book is treat.

    22. With a single word, Sullivan tells a story familiar to families with dogs and children. The brilliance of this picture book is in Sullivan's use of the single word to demonstrate nuance, affect, tone, audience, speaker so many elements of language use not accorded direct attention. The narrative itself is weak; it's not much of a story. I can imagine it being used in a speech pathology environment to assist people who struggle with things like tone, volume, situation, etc affecting the meaning o [...]
