Book Review: The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples: The Rescue By Richard McEwan

51au1S-J9-L._SS300_[1]This is a wonderfully adorable picture book about rescuing dogs and finding them a forever home.

The story opens up with a puppy named Pupples all alone at the edge of the road. He is scared and hungry. He keeps trying to cross the road to get to where he thinks his family has gone. But each time he isn’t successful. So, Pupples goes back to where he was originally, saddened and cold. He is also muddy and his coat is full of burrs. He misses his family.

Suddenly, a car pulls over to the side of the road and a lady with a sweet, low voice gets out of the car and calls out for him. But Pupples is too scared to come to her.

But there was another dog, Sir Buddy. When his Mom came home she was worried. But what was she worried about? He overheard her talking to someone on the phone about a lost dog. Could he help Mom rescue the lost dog?

This is a story that will keep kids reading and re-reading the book. I loved the book and the story line. I have a real soft spot for stray dogs and cats anyways. So, this story really intrigued me, as it will most young readers. The illustrations are also very endearing and will bring the message home for kids.
