I've tried, unsucessfully, a number of times to introduce my son to chapter books. He is only four, but will be turning five soon. I wanted him to experience the imaginative process of developing an image in his mind from what he hears. This is the first book that has held his interest. He can't read it himself but I can see his face change expression as he listens - I know his mind is at work. We always only read one chapter at a time, drawing the story out. He always can recall the story up to the starting point and is anxious to hear another chapter. I feel like the "magic" of books has been taken to a new level for our little reader - what an amazing thing to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute book Oct. 27 2010
By M. Hunninghake - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We just adopted a beagle from a rescue for my 8 year old son. I got this book for him since he is a reader and he wanted more of the set. It was a little easy for him (he is a 3rd grader and high reader) but it still kept his attention and he was ready for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars The "Lucy Trilogy," Book #3 July 20 2009
By Dwight Blubaugh - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is Ilene Cooper's third book in her Lucy series, following #1 / Absolutely Lucy and #2 / Lucy on the Loose, all three part of the Stepping Stones series of easy chapter books.

The book is about Bobby Quinn, a painfully shy boy, and his beagle pup, Lucy. Since Bobby's parents gave Lucy to him for his eighth birthday earlier in the summer, Lucy has helped Bobby make his first two friends and start to come out of his shell. The new friends, Shawn and Candy, are both new to the neighborhood and all three are waiting to see whether they'll be in the same classroom when school starts. The three children decide to enter their pets in a "spokespet" contest at the local pet store, and Lucy manages to win, earning her a year's worth of dog food and a chance to be in a commercial if she wins at the next level. Bobby is proud and excited for Lucy until he learns that he would also be expected to be in the commercial. The thought terrifies him, but he doesn't want Lucy to miss an opportunity for the spotlight. Further, when school starts, Bobby's teacher tells the class they will be giving oral reports in front of the class. Bobby has a lot of fears to deal with, but has a dog and two new friends to help him through it.

The plot is somewhat similar to Because of Winn-Dixie, where the main character is lonely and has no friends until a pet dog helps her make new friends and become more outgoing.

I've enjoyed reading this series, including this third book. At 102 pages, with large print and several illustrations, this book is longer than the 74-75 pages of the first two books, but still perfect for my lower fourth grade readers. The reading level, 2.8, is also higher than the 2.0 and 1.9 of the first two books. However, as young readers become more familiar with characters, storyline, etc., it tends to make the reading level easier for them.

I can now file these three books together on my "limited series" shelf, filling a niche for my struggling readers. I'm sure the books will be much read and loved in the coming years.

I would rate this book an 8 (solidly enjoyable, good quality) on a scale of 1-10.

Actually our intro to Lucy was through Lucy on the Loose but is the only book my just-turned 6 yr. old granddaughter asks to have read to her again/some more, remembering where we left off the last time - I can see it being the first book she reads on her own - we love it!

Absolutely Lucy #1: Absolutely Lucy (A Stepping Stone Book(TM))

I have just read the book "Absolutely Lucy" by Ilene Cooper, and I am writing my first book report ever! This book is about a squirmy little puppy beagle and her owner Bobby, who is really shy. Bobby got the beagle on his 8th birthday and named her "Lucy". Lucy drags Bobby into all sorts of things! Also, Lucy helps Bobby make new friends, because Bobby was so shy he had trouble making friends.

I really enjoyed reading "Absolutely Lucy" and I want to know more about Lucy and Bobby!
