Doggo and Pupper

Feiwel & Friends. (Doggo and Pupper: Bk. 1). Mar. 2021. 96p. Tr $9.99. ISBN 9781250620972.
Gr 1-3–In this new early reader series, Doggo is content with his predictable routine of eating, napping, going for walks, diving in the trash, and just generally being the dog of his house. Not everyone knows that with his role comes big responsibilities. Squirrel activity needs to be monitored, mail carriers should be greeted, small humans must be watched over, and yet Doggo still makes time for leisure and hobbies while the humans are away. Mistakenly worrying that Doggo is bored, his human brings home the very spunky Pupper. Pupper is playful, messy, and having a ball in his new home when the humans decide it is time for him to learn basic behavior at charm school. Returning home, Pupper is just not the same. He sits. He stays. Alder’s bark-out-loud illustrations are cartoon-like and colorful, perfectly in step with the one to three sentences per page. The text is spaced to train a young reader’s eyes to scan from the top of the page to bottom. Containing seven short chapters, this tale is a great match for children on the path to chapter books.
VERDICT A recommended purchase for school and public libraries looking for engaging early readers sure to give children the giggles.
