Review: Doodle Dog by Frank Rodgers

Title: Doodle Dog
Author: Frank Rodgers
Published: May 1, 2015
Publisher: Hungry Horse

Genre: Children's Ages 4 on up
Review: Ebook provided by Netgalley and Publisher

Sam knew he couldn't have a real dog of his own, but his mum drew him a picture - a 'Doodle' she called it - of a beutiful black and white puppy. Sam took it bed with him that night. The next morning he was woken by a strange tickly feeling on his cheek. Even before he opened his eyes he knew it was 'Doodle Dog'.

We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
K and I really enjoyed this book especially the imagination the boy has. Sam wants a dog but his mother says they can't have one because they do not have a garden and it wouldn't be right. So with the help of his mother they draw a dog which Sam names Doodle. The next morning Doodle is there and Sam and him go on an adventure to a barn and help wrangle in sheep. The pictures are cute and bring the story to life. The only reason I am giving this book a 4 star rating instead of a 5 like I was hoping is the way it looks on my kindle. Some pictures are put right in the middle of a sentence, one page had part of the sentence at the end so I had to re-read a couple of times as it sounded funny and then I saw it. Also before a picture is added the sentence should finish and then add it in. Other than that it was a wonderful story that kids will truly enjoy.
