This is a wonderful picture book for kids that is at once enjoyable as it is funny. It will be a book that kids of all ages will want to turn to often.
This is the first book in the Buddy and Earl series. I will be reviewing the second and third book in a bit. All of the stories are very engaging and funny.
What is in the box that Meredith has carried into the living room? Buddy doesn’t know. But when the small, prickly creature inside says he a pirate, and that Buddy is too, the mismatched friends are off on a grand adventure.
In this book, a dog who likes to play by the rules meets an animal who knows no limits. Their friendship is tender and loyal, their adventures funny and imaginative.
Maureen Fergus’s text and Carey Sookocheff’s art emphasize the humor and warmth of this odd and loveable animal pair, creating a story perfect for reading aloud or for newly independent readers.
This is a wonderful book that most kids will not be able to put down.
