Everything is new to the mischievous young pup, from getting a new name to meeting new family members, diving into the tumbling waves of the sea or playing in the snow. His antics as he questions and investigates are a delight – and sometimes get him into trouble with Mom and Dad. But through it all, the puppy learns that he is dearly loved and, in return, he adores his new family – especially the little girl he calls ‘my human pup’. He also decides that his role in the family is as their protector.
The rhymes are perfect for reading aloud to children, worded to ensure each scene is easy to imagine and illustrated with colourful and cute images that both children and adults will love.
Overall, Puppy is a lovely book, and a great educational resource for teaching young children about love and family values as well as a respect for animals.
From the day he’s born through to turning one, read about what this adorable puppy experiences and how he feels about all the fun new things he comes across. Snow, Christmas, a newspaper through the door, jumping in the sea, and being with his new family are just some of the lovely things he comes learns in his first year.
This fun and sweet poem is set out in months – from the moment the puppy has been born through to his first birthday. We follow the joys he experiences as he comes across things for the first time. We also see the unconditional love he both gives and receives, which is adorable. This is very visible with the relationship he has with the little girl in his new family.
Although written for children, a lot of adults will enjoy the poem. If the reader has, or has previously had dogs in their lives they will laugh along with what this dog gets up to and find themselves thinking ‘this is true!’ I certainly did!
The illustrations are beautiful and cheery, bright and fun. They really complimented the poem.
This poem doesn’t rhyme. But that’s no bad thing. It reads more like a story and in this case, I think it works better than a rhyme would.
My daughter loved this book. She enjoyed pointing out what was happening in the illustrations and listening to what the puppy got up to.
This is a great book for adults to share with their young ones time and time again. I certainly will.

I received a free copy of this book, which I voluntarily reviewed
This book has lovely illustrations aimed to draw in younger children and is written as a poem portraying the first year of a puppy’s life.
The book is written in the point of view of the dog as he calls his little girl owner ‘ his pup’. It details how the puppy deals with everyday things, learning from adventure and exploring.
This book is definitely aimed at younger children and will delight them as an adult reads it out loud to them. However any dog lover will also love this book and will no doubt smile as they do so.
Patricia is destined to become a good children’s writer in the future.
I give this book 5 stars as I couldn’t help but smile as I read it.
The illustrations are sweet and cute and really drew my two years olds attention where as my five year old really took to the poems. Even though Dex and Missy usually prefer to read a printed copy they both cuddled up with me and enjoyed looking at this book on my Kindle. The pictures worked well on a digital copy and to be honest as long as they are interested in reading I'm not worried whether it is a print or digital copy that we read from. I have to say that I would agree with the books age range of 4-9 years as my little boy seemed to appreciate the book just that little bit more.
This book is absolutely perfect for dog lovers and I loved the journey that the little puppy took in the first 12 months of it's life. We all loved the mischievousness that the puppy showed it made it all the more fun to read. There was a lovely use of words throughout that was easy for my children to understand. My little boy especially enjoyed the September entry as the "human pup" started school just like he did. It's lovely to see some of the new experiences that the puppy encounters right through to the pup's first birthday.
A wonderful and adorable adventure!
Five stars from us!
With thanks to Patricia Furstenberg for our copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
