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!
Absolutely Lucy is a book by Ilene Coper. This book has a true message to it. This message is that friends come in all shapes, colors, sizes, and even species. Also that friends help build corage and ease your pain.
In Absolutely Lucy a boy named Bobby turns from a shy boy with no friends to an outcoming boy with many friends. All of this just from Lucy. I guess you can even say Lucy is a hero!!! Lucy and Bobby end up meeting someone named Mr. Davis. Lucy saved his life!!! WHAT A HERO!!! GO LUCY!!!
So as you can see Lucy is a great dog and Bobby is learning to live off his life the best he can. Lucy is such a great dog she is helping everyone.
