About the Book:
Read along with this playful pup as he chews, digs, and slobbers his way into trouble
Sniff shoes. Lick shoes.
Gnaw shoes. More shoes!
Uh oh…your shoes?
Bad dog, Flash!
When it comes to mischief, there are some things Flash just can’t resist. From shoes to sticks and mud to licks, Flash gets into all kinds of trouble that elicits some (tough) love from his owners. But as all dog lovers know, you can only scold your puppy for so long…and then it’s back to giving them lots of love and affection!
What a cute book! My kids and I read this several times before bed and they loved it. It accurately portrays the experience of owning a puppy and all the chaos that comes with it. Flash gets into trouble time and again, but in the end, the thing that matters most is the love between a child and a dog.
The illustrations are very cute and well executed. I really like the author/illustrator’s style and I hope to see more of her work in the future.
The book is written in a simple, easy to read format so it works well for young children or for kids that are reading independently. My first grader loves reading this book to her younger sister.
