Do you love dogs? Do you love dog books?! You will love this awesome book called Can I Be Your Dog? by Troy Cummings. It is a book about a dog named Arfy. He is looking for a human (or owner). He is looking on a street named Butternut Street. This book will make you want a dog even more than ever before!
This book is written as a letter. Each page goes between Arfy writing the letter and next page with the letter from the person he wrote it to.
I love the illustrations in this book! Arfy, as an illustration, is so awesome! He is so cute that I could cuddle with him for a million years! The words look handwritten or mouth-written in Arfy’s case. I just love the different fonts from the different people that written back to Arfy’s letter back to him.
This book is heart-tugging and cute! This book wants me to get a dog even more! This book is all about dogs and people. Dogs looking for homes like Arfy and people looking for dogs like me. The letters Arfy wrote were very persuasive. If Arfy wrote a letter to me, I would respond, “YES!”.
There's a surprise at the end of this book. It is a happy ending I can tell you that! The author included the name of the main character and gave nicknames to the places he is writing. And, it is so cool! A lot of books or stories have a moral, and I already know this books moral! It is “Never Give Up," like the book, The Gingerbread Man Loose at the Zoo. I loved how Arfy got a negative response but he never gave up!
The book, Can I Be Your Dog?, by Troy Cummings is so awesome! It is one of the best books I’ve read so far, and trust me I have read a ton of books! This age range is K-5th. Just because it is written as easy text. Does Arfy ever get an owner? Read to find out!
