Puppy Pals: Bijou by Susan Hughes (Book Review)

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own.

About the book-

The newest adventure in the pawsitively adorable Puppy Pals series!

When three bichon frise puppies are left on the doorstep of Tails Up!, Aunt Jenn asks Kat, Maya, and Grace to look after them and find them new homes. Best of all, they get to choose names for the pups! They pick three French names: Aimée, Chantal, and Bijou.

Calls begin to come in from people interested in adopting the puppies, and Aimée and Chantal are soon placed in loving homes, but Kat worries that nobody will see the playful side of Bijou, the shy puppy. Even worse, Grace is being teased at schoolagain. Can Bijou help end Grace’s conflict and find himself a new home?

My thoughts-

The Puppy Pals series are popular among my third grade daughter's classroom. They love these books, each about a different puppy or two. This was the series that got her out of her "I only read Junie B. Jones" phase, so I am thankful that they allowed her to branch out and try something new. The Puppy Pals books are always cute books, easy to read, but there is usually a lesson in there somewhere. In "Bijou" the lesson is that what you see on the surface with someone isn't always the whole story. I think that is a great lesson for the age group that likes these books and I love how sweet the story about these three puppies that need to be adopted, including sweet, but lonely Bijou, just add to that lesson. I recommend this book for children ages 7-10. Puppy Pals: Bijou will be available February 7, 2017. You can pre-order your copy on
