Chick 'n' Pug: The Love Pug

illus. by Jennifer Sattler. 32p. ebook available. Bloomsbury. Dec. 2015. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781619636729.
PreS-Gr 1—Chick and Pug are back at their adorable doggy and chick shenanigans as they begin the book lying out in the sun. Daisy comes on the scene, and Chick is taken with her and acts as a go-between for the precious little black pug and the clueless Pug. Chick describes Pug as magnificent and points out his muscles, and Daisy swoons. In Pug's usual lackadaisical style, he ignores Daisy while Chick works his magic to help Daisy capture Pug's attention. The story concludes with a satisfying ending. Cuteness abounds throughout this bright and cheery book in the art created with acrylics and colored pencil. With simple, large text and opportunities to infer deeper meaning, children will enjoy this one as a read-aloud or as an independent read.
VERDICT A delightful addition where the previous books are popular, and a charming general purchase for most libraries.
