Review: The Octopuppy

For this review, Ethan and I read The Octopuppy by Martin McKenna that I won from Goodreads  First Reads .  I received a copy of the hardcover book for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Can the OCTOPUPPY be the perfect pet? 

Edgar wanted a dog. Instead, he got an octopus named Jarvis.

Jarvis is brilliant and does his best to act like the dog Edgar wants, but nothing he does is good enough to please Edgar. Ultimately, Edgar recognizes that while Jarvis might not be the dog he wanted, he is special in his own endearing way.

Young readers will love the funny, imaginative illustrations that are paired with a relatable lesson of appreciating the greatness of what we have in front of us.

Ethan and I read this together.  Ethan loved this book, which is colorful and very well written with great drawings.  Edgar wanted a dog, but instead he got an octopus named Jarvis.  Edgar realized he had an octopuppy that could do many things.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
