Love That Puppy!: The Story of a Boy Who Wanted to Be a Dog
By Jeff Jarka
2009/05 – Hardcover
Henry Holt & Company
A few months back the publishers (Macmillan) sent me a sample copy of this book. I kept thinking that the book reminded me of a certain four-year-old (now five) customer who frequently comes into the store. The very day in question he was crawling around on all fours claiming that he was a dog! Imagine how Jung would flip over the synchronicity of the moment?! I sure did. And the best part is that the dog on this cover looks just like this young man! So, all that said, this is a delightful book of a boy who “thinks he’s a dog.” You’ve seen it before. The ending will give you a big smile!
