Editorial Review for Outstanding Creator Award Nominee 8/2023

Score: 95/100 (9.5 out of 10)

Puppy Comes Home is a heartwarming, happy, and uplifting children's book that follows a family and a dog as they go through the puppy stages of her life.

Abbey Rose is an adorable Great Dane puppy, the largest puppy in her whole litter. What also helps her to stand out from her brothers and sisters is the white pattern that adorns her nose, paw, and chest. She's absolutely adorable! Our all-time winningest artist, Anthony Richichi really captures Abbey Rose's cuteness and uniqueness. He did the same in capturing Alfie's cuteness and uniqueness in Alfie. We've said it before, but Richichi is especially adept at illustrating animals (and non-human creatures).

Abbey Rose is curious, adventurous, and sometimes even mischievous, as all good little boys and girls are! As a puppy, she does things like chew on shoes, ruining them with her sharp teeth. However, most of the time, she's the life of the party—a positive force for comfort and good. People love to pet her because she's the tallest dog, and thus the easiest to reach.

We get to see how Abbey Rose touches so many lives positively, bringing joy and happiness to all who encounter her.

This book as a bittersweet backstory or undertone as Abbey Rose was born with too big a heart (literally)--a rare and often fatal condition. Abbey Rose was not given long to live, but by golly did she LIVE!

This book doesn't dwell in the loss or even the inevitability of it. Instead, the book simply portrays Abbey Rose as living a very happy and full life—a complete and fulfilling life. This book memorializes Abbey Rose in the most loving, caring, genuine, and beautiful way possible: by showing all the things that she got to experience, and all the love she gave and was given.

It's hard not to shed a tear when thinking about this.

One of our favorite parts of the book was when Abbey Rose's parents decided to dress her up for special days: Santa Claus on Christmas, a referee for a football game, and a ladybug for Halloween. What this tells the reader is that even though Abbey Rose didn't live as long as most other dogs, she still experienced a lot and accomplished a lot.

"Puppy Comes Home" is an absolute treasure of a book that captured my heart from the very beginning. As someone who adores Great Danes, I was immediately drawn to this adorable tale.

Not only does this book delve into the process of adoption, but it also takes readers on a delightful journey into what comes next, shedding light on the realities of raising a puppy, especially a big lovable one!

Through immersing themselves in the story, young readers will not only have a great time but will also acquire a profound understanding of the responsibilities that accompany pet ownership. It's a marvelous way to educate children about the significance of care and commitment.

The story is narrated from the point of view of the dog itself, which adds a special touch that sets it apart from other books in the same genre. This technique enables readers to establish a real connection with the endearing protagonist and view the world from their point of view. Consequently, they will find it easier to relate to their own furry friend's experiences and emotions.

Altogether, welcoming a puppy into your family is truly wonderful. However, I strongly believe that both children and adults must understand the actuality of it and the importance of being competent caregivers. This book serves as an outstanding resource to accomplish just that. In my point of view, it should be mandatory reading!

A book for anyone looking for a new pet - 4 out of 5 stars

The writer very delicately explains how wonderful it is to have an adopted pet. She thoroughly demonstrates the proper food and care required to care for pet. She mentions the expenses involved to train the pet and keep it healthy. The author was using her dog as the main character. She was very careful to blend in time and money it takes but the reward of your pets' love is genuine.  - Amazon

A Must Read Before Getting a Dog - 5 out of 5 stars

I honestly wish every child that wanted a dog would read this book with their parent(s) before bringing one home. This book beautifully communicates the intense amount of both work and love that coexist when owning a pet. It provides real-life examples of what may happen when we leave our shoes or toys that we love lying around and our puppy chews them...or how often dogs need to go for a walk...or need to be trained to do things like sit and stay. Trips to the vet? Covered. Taking the dog out to dogs parks or shopping centers to socialize them? Covered. The incredible bond and unconditional love you get from welcoming this new family member into your home? Covered. I sincerely wish a copy of this book was at every shelter, breeder, and adoption agency there was...I whole-heartedly recommend this as a gift to any child that wishes to one day own a dog, as it provides the opportunity to open a dialogue about the level of committment necessary to own one. It would also be a great gift for a teacher's classroom! - Amazon
