Winner Of “Menagerie” By Sharon Montrose, Illustrations And Lettering By Julianna Swaney

I love how things in life work. Sometimes coincidences are just delightful!

Today is the perfect example of that.

Author/Illustrator Wendy Wahman

Last summer I had the pleasure of reviewing two delightful  children’s books by  author/illustrator, Wendy Wahman.

The first book of Wendy’s that I had reviewed was “Don’t Lick The Dog” , you can read the review here

The second book of Wendy’s that I had reviewed was actually reviewed on my other blog, Cat Chat.  The title of the book is “A Cat Like That” and you can read that review here

You can also visit Wendy’s website here

As you have probably already figured out…

WENDY WAHMAN  is the winner of “Menagerie” (as chosen by www.random.org)

CONGRATULATIONS WENDY!!

Book Review: “Don’t Lick The Dog, Making Friends With Dogs” By Wendy Wahman

I am so excited I can barely keep my tail from wagging and my body from spinning!

Today I present to you my FIRST book review!

I couldn’t have picked a cuter book to read for my first review!

I may have only been alive for four years but in those years I have come across my share of kids AND their parents who don’t know the proper way to approach a doggie that they do not know.  Heck sometimes my Mommy and my Daddy have to be told the correct way to meet and greet an unfamiliar doggie.

Now that we have “Don’t Lick The Dog, Making Friends With Dogs”, by Wendy Wahman kids and their parents have no excuse NOT to greet a doggie properly!

My Mom and I read this book together and we think it is adorable! (That is Mom’s word, adorable is too “girrly” of a word for me to use).

It is written in a rhyming style :

“Easy now, take it slow

when meeting dogs

that you don’t know.

Don’t stick your nose in Stella’s face-

until you’re friends,

she needs her space.”

This book  has brightly colored illustrations that were also done by Wendy,  that are fun to look at!  I like the doggies in the book that look like a Chihuahua and one that is a Poodle because they remind me of my friends Chico and Colette. I will have to show them this book one day! There is even a drawing of one doggie that looks like a Sheltie! It was probably meant to be a Collie but for the purpose of this blog we will just go with a Sheltie, ok?

Check out this cool video that I have that will tell you even more about this fun and informative book!

I hope you will purchase this book. It is super fun to read and look at and  it teaches everybody from kids to their parents the best way to act with all of us doggies.

Speaking as one of the canine persuasion I say BRAVO and THANK YOU to Wendy!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
