Reviews for Thief of Hearts

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Fall
Talking dog Martha helps broker a compromise for the town's fireworks display; discovers who is making scary sounds while camping out; and finds missing Valentine card supplies. These three brief adaptations of episodes from the PBS series, while somewhat diverting for more confident beginning readers, are as glossy (and ultimately forgettable) as the cartoon representation of Meddaugh's trademark characters. [Review covers these Green Light Readers titles: Martha Speaks: Fireworks for All, Martha Speaks: Martha Camps Out, and Martha Speaks: Thief of Hearts.] Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
