review 1: I love this book. I love the art style, I love the concepts, and I love the ending. Sadly, it is too wordy to use for a young story time without serious editing and the details in the drawings are too small for children at the back of the room, but I would like to try to use it s...

review 1: A Perfectly Messed-Up Story by Patrick McDonnell gets well….a little messy. :DBetween bloops and blobs of peanut butter & jelly, drink rings and more--Louie tries to tell us his tale. A tale that shows readers of all ages that messes and mistakes happen in fiction and life. Li...

review 1: I thought these illustrations looked familiar! McDonnell also does comics for the newspaper called Mutts. I'm not going to lie, I find the newspaper version annoying. This wordless book however, is very endearing and whimsical. I like the sparse style and limited, muted color...
Mutts Shelter Stories: Love. Guaranteed. (2008)
4.55 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I thought this book was going to have, well, stories in it. You know, about shelter animals. I didn't expect one or two milquetoast comments over a picture of the shelter animal. I knew this book was Mutts related but it was way more Mutts and way less shelter animal goodness tha...

review 1: I loved it, it tugged at my heart and made me give my own senior rescue dog a tighter hug. The comics were too cute, and made me smile. I, too, wish there was more information on the animals featured, but at the end of the day they were all adopted and living healthy, happy liv...
