TITLE: The Writer
AUTHOR: Davide Cali
ILLUSTRATOR: Monica Barengo
PUBLISHER: Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2022
A dog has an important job to do, especially if his human is a writer. Without a dog by his side, the writer would forget to eat. He’d never get out of his pajamas, and he’d probably stare at the computer all day long. But even the best French bulldog can’t do everything. Maybe this perfect pair needs someone new in their lives…
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : When I first read this book, I laughed out loud. It reminded me so much of Disney’s 101 Dalmatians and the premise that Rodger need a companion to balance his writing life. The illustrations are adorable and so lifelike. Young readers will be highly amused by this cute story. A nice addition to any library!
RATING: ****4 Stars****
1 star…probably not worth your time.
2 stars…there are some things to like but some elements could have been stronger.
3 stars…this story will appeal to some readers, but others might find it lacking something.
4 stars…strong story, nice illustrations, and should grab the attention of many readers.
5 stars…superbly written story, stellar illustrations, a must addition to any book lovers’ collection!
Fox is set to cook a nice meal until the main ingredient tries to escape! The chase is on as Fox and his friends scurry, hop, and lumber their way to catching those rumbly, tumbly taters. Friendship and teamwork go hand in hand during THE GREAT POTATO RACE!
