Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

So sweet it'll cause cavities, this delightful marshmallow of a coffee table book compiles 100 shots of pure and mixed-breed puppies at actual life size of six weeks of age sleeping, curiously studying the camera, playing and resting. Sleeping Labradors Detta and Jake, Tater Tot, the colossal Great Dane that's barely contained by the book's generous dimensions and the kissable Chad, the English Bulldog who graces the cover, all beg to be picked up, petted and loved. Which is part of creator and photographer J. Nichole Smith's plan. Information on adopting all of the 25 puppies pictured here is provided as an epilogue, giving readers contact information for a number of national shelter networks as well as the breeders of the purebreeds featured in the book. There is absolutely no information on the characteristics of the dogs or even breeds featured here – there's barely any text at all and potential parents are left to find that on their own – but those with a soft spot for puppies will have an awful time putting this one down, as each dog seems cuter, softer and sweeter than the one before. Photos (Oct.)

I am a sucker for puppy pictures so it's no surprise I loved this book. The large format makes it even more special. I wish somebody could come up with a way to convey puppy breath--maybe in a scratch and sniff. That would boost this up to a thousand stars.

This book was recommended on a blog I read, so ordered it as I love puppies. It is so cute all puppies are photographed at 6 weeks old, and show how they all differ at the same age. There is a description about how the puppies were picked and photographed. I love this book

Bought this as a gift... seemed a great one, but looked through it before I wrapped it and had second thoughts. The puppies are cute but could be cuter, and does my friend really need a hard cover book of puppy pictures?

It's hard to resist the friendly faces of puppies. Just looking at the pictures will bring a smile to your face and the occasional laugh (plus some "oohs and ahhs"). I gave this book as a gift thinking that it will bring joy and a bright moment when daily routines become drab. It was one of the few gifts that was still being paged through later Christmas day. It was worth every cent!

I bought this for my grandson, and he loved it. His parents and I enjoyed the book at least as much!

In addition to the fabulous pictures, the book provides the weight for each puppy so that we can easily see howmuch the pups differ.

Of course puppies are cute. This book goes the extra mile by choosing nontraditional poses as well as keeping the subjects life-size. I have leafed through this book several times and have a new favorite on each viewing.
