Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–Sattler is back with another clever yarn. “Chick had read The Adventures of Wonder Pug! 127 times. Every page was packed with excitement. But there was no excitement in the chicken coop. So Chick set off to find some.” What Chick finds is an ordinary, lackadaisical pug whom he idolizes. But when the pup's baby-talking owner brings a cat over, Chick decides something must be done as “clearly, Pug's strategy was to play dead.” The chick barks to frighten the feline away and declares himself Pug's sidekick. While some of the tongue-in-cheek story may go over younger children's heads, Chick's comical voice and the book's spare text are still likely to appeal to the book's audience, with the more sophisticated parts speaking to older siblings and parents. Little Chick, with his huge eyes, and Pug, who couldn't possibly be more puglike, are rendered in acrylics and colored pencil. The bright, smeary backgrounds make the two characters stand out even more, and their slightly cartoony look fits the story perfectly. In one priceless spread, Chick opens his mouth so wide that its diamond shape seems to take over his body and he yells, “woof!” In the background, the pug remains nonplussed, while, in the foreground, the terrified cat flees. Preschool fans of dogs, chickens, superheroes, and humor will all find something to like here, as will librarians looking for something to freshen up storytimes.

Simple story line for preschoolers to follow, but humorous enough for grade-schoolers & adults.

Format: Hardcover
This is a cute book about a chicken who's only source of excitement comes from his The Adventures of Wonder Pug, book. The chicken coop offers very little excitement that he's craving, so he ventures out to find it. With his book in hand he stumbles across a real live wonder pug. What chick doesn't realize, is this "wonder pug" wants to sleep, not play. No matter what Chick does, Wonder Pug hardly budges. My kids laughed at all Chick tries to do to get pug up, until finally he takes matters into his own hands and becomes Wonder Pugs side kick and creates just the adventure he was looking for.

With fun illustrations and a cute story, Chick n Pug is fun family read.

Format: Hardcover
Chick lives for reading The Adventures of Wonder Pug - each page in his copy has been flipped exactly 127 times. With the henhouse full of boring, snoring hens, energetic Chick sets off to find some real life excitement. Imagine how delighted he is to come across a real, live Wonder Pug right in his own backyard! Chick is spellbound just watching him sleep. And sleep. And sleep some more. Okay, maybe this Wonder Pug needs a little prodding to be wonderful.

Once awakened, Pug continues to do amazing things ... if you considering rolling around on the ground and ear scratching to be amazing. He then resumes napping while Chick flutters nervously about. He's just sure this pug is going to spring into action at any moment! Will he attack the knitted rope or show that Frisbee who's boss? Chick is so enamored of his new discovery that he is quite sure something exciting could happen at any time. I think Chick has some high hopes that far exceed the real life actions of most pugs. But still, you gotta love a little chick that continues to hold his hero in such high esteem, with no proof that his admiration is deserved.

Eventually the pug's owner comes over and there is a bit of a scuffle over an undignified outfit. After that, Chick takes matters into his own hands (wings?) and helps scare away an evil-looking, fluffy cat lurking nearby. To Chick, the pug he found may be a teensy bit lazy, but he is every bit as cool as his hero in The Adventures of Wonder Pug. This one just requires a little yellow sidekick!

Format: Hardcover
Chick n Pug is a wonderful book for kids and adults. The illustrations are humorous and spot-on for the pug. The storyline and illustrations are perfect pug behavior (a huge source of amusement for pug owners), but everyone will enjoy the story. I bought it "for the family", but if I could hoard it for myself, I would.
Simple story line for preschoolers to follow, but humorous enough for grade-schoolers & adults.

My two year old daughter is in love with this book. She demands to read it every night before bed. She alters her evening with one or two other books, but she always includes chick n pug in the mix. She loves the end where the chick says,"woof!" to scare off the interloping cat. Thank you, Ms. Sattler, for your wonderful story with great illustrations.

Chick 'n Pug is a fun-filled 32 page picture book, with something for adults and children. The illustrations are clever and bring life to the text. You do not have to be a pug lover to appreciate the lethargic Pug. Chick is everyone who believes in a super hero. This book was just for fun and it's entertainment value is 100%.

As a pug owner, I purchased this for my son who is 5. It is adorable and his favorite book. He gets a total kick out of the story no matter how many times I read it. The illustrations are as cute as the story. We will read this for many years to come.

My 5 year old son loves this book. We have a pug and we make jokes about her all the time. I think the author could have made this book a lot funnier. The pug really doesn't do anything but sleep. The pictures are good and on the same page as the pictures, so it's layout is done well, but I did not like it as much as my son.
