Book Review- "Pugtato" by Sophie Corrigan
About the Book:
Enchanting illustrations. Giggle-inducing text. Unique and loveable characters. Join Pugtato and his cute and quirky pack of pals in this heartwarming picture book that celebrates the power of friendship, compassion, and believing in your own unique gifts.
When Pugtato’s simple, quiet life is disrupted after he digs up a strange object in his garden, he enlists his best “spuddies” to help (they are more clever than he is, after all). Tweetroot is certain it’s a new egg for her nest. Tomatoad is quite sure it’s a toy just for him. And Purrsnip simply won’t stop scratching it! Luckily, Pugtato has another very special spuddy to ask …
Pugtato Finds a Thing:
- Introduces kids 4-8 to a hilarious mash-up of pet and vegetable characters by the inimitable illustrator Sophie Corrigan
- Written in delightful, giggle-inducing, rhyming text
- Eye-catching cover features spot gloss and embossing
This is a cute and silly little book that is great for kids aged 4-8 years old. The cute vegetable characters are sure to spur conversations and guess as to what vegetable they are. Kids will enjoy guessing what the "thing" is as well and laugh there way to the end. The author does a great job of playing with words too which make reading this story more fun for the big kids and adults! The illustrator kept quiet browns and yellows for majority of this book. This can create a calm reading which would be perfect for nap time. I was a little sad that there was not faith mentioned in this story. In fact it says "But he's wiser than most when he follows his heart." That is not biblical. We need to follow Jesus heart because ours can get us in trouble.
Thank you Zondervan for sending me a free book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own and I was not paid for this review.
