Scanner and the Icky, Sticky, Gum
A review from Midwest Book Review
"Second in a new series featuring Scanner, the library Scottie, "Scanner and the Icky, Sticky Gum" is a delightful story about an inquisitive library Scottie dog who ventures into a wastebasket and emerges laced with icky, sticky gum. "Scanner's owner, Miss Copywright, needs assistance in deciding what book". "Scanner and the Icky, Sticky Gum" is an action driven story for children ages 4-8 years. Brightly colored action illustrations complement the exciting narrative. Scanner is both scolded and rescued by the librarian Miss Copywright for his trash can bubble gum adventure. With the help of the card catalog, Miss Copywright discovers the secret to gum removal in the 648 section, after drafting help from the janitor to put Scanner in a cardboard box, to minimize gum spreading. First, she doused Scanner with peanut butter, then she gave him a bubble bath. Success! Scanner tramped away clean from his bubble bath treatment, planning his next exciting library adventure (oh, no). Kids
will adore Scanner and his very own library adventure series, and especially 'Scanner and the Icky, Sticky Gum.'"
Each book in the Scanner the Scottie series will have a Dewey number so that children will be able to find that section of books in the library.
After reading about Scanner's gum adventures, children might enjoy reading the first Scanner book. In this book, he needs a home, a name, and a job. He meets Miss Copywright who becomes his owner.
