Praise for Flawed Dogs
"Breathed, through words and lush illustrations, tells a story that will charm many readers."--The New York Times
"Flawed Dogs is hilarious and sweet with a message of friendship and faithfulness that anyone (even cat lovers) will find uplifting. Each animal in the book is an unforgettable character, drawn and written with Berkeley Breathed's signature brand of wit. His illustrations add an extra measure of emotion to the already lovely book. Berkeley Breathed's illustrations are amazing and they impart the message of the story with humor and poignancy."--Common Sense Media

"A moving tale about the beauty of imperfections and the capacity for love." --Publishers Weekly
"[An] engaging and well-paced tale." --School Library Journal
"An easily understood but very fun and crazy plot that takes hold of the reader."--VOYA

But seriously, this is a wonderful book for young (but not too young) and old. For those who think kids will be too traumatized by the cruelty, remember that a fellow named Walt Disney introduced most of us to these kinds of harsh realities in a little film called "Bambi". In "Flawed Dogs" we follow Sam's fall from grace, years of unspeakable living conditions, and ultimate redemption through sacrifice. Berkeley's illustrations are wonderful! He hasn't lost his touch one bit - in fact, I think he's better than ever! I would love to see "Sam the Lion" t-shirts promoting animal rescue & adoption come from this. You will be searching the doggie rescue websites after reading it (as well you should) because there is no love like the unconditional love of a rescued animal.
Memorable and enjoyable. Very special story.
