The illustrations are wonderful. They combine detail with simplicity. The colors are pretty and attractive. I bought this for my device but I would love to see the hardcover version.
It seems like this could be a story that could evolve and develop into a series. My only recommendation would be too reduce the wordiness but increase the vocabulary to include feeling and emotion words. As a parent, I appreciate when these concepts are included in cute stories so that they can expand my child's vocabulary and knowledge as we enjoy the book. This story seems most appropriate for 4+ years of age. Parents will enjoy the funny puns and embedded adult humor.
Then, Puptrick was embarrassed by a mean dog friend at class and he was afraid to stand up for himself even though he was hurt and angry. His teacher helps him to understand that he can stand up for himself and trust others even when someone he once used to trust has suddenly let him down. Puptrick is much happier when he takes a chance and stands up for himself by telling the mean dog friend how he feels and placing his trust in another friend who stays true to his word.
Though both stories are simple, they impart important life lessons to youngsters on several levels. They let the young reader know that it's not ok to lie but that it is ok to stand up for yourself and forgive and trust others. Maybe more importantly, these stories let the young reader know that it hurts the person who tells lies on the inside far more than it may hurt the person being lied to. Knowing that they have the power to control when they are happy is an important lesson to learn at an early age - one that will serve our children throughout their life. For important, powerful messages about happiness and how to help children understand it, this book is a must read.
These cute little stories are certainly recommended, and absolutely come with my highest regards. If you are looking for a sweet little read to share with a little one that will have a delightful message and bring happiness into the light Puptrick is just what you are looking for!
