Picture Book Review: Silly Doggy, by Adam Stower


Join Lily and her brand
new pet-a lost, loveable, and very large bear that she mistakes as a
doggy-as they share a fantastic day together.

When Lily looks out
of her bedroom window, she finds the best surprise ever: her very own
lost dog! But this is no normal puppy, this is actually a lost, lovable

Nevertheless, Lily and Doggy quickly become fast friends.
Sure Doggy doesn’t eat his dog food, can’t do any dog tricks, and never
ever does what Lily tells him, but this rambunctious “pup” still steals
Lily’s heart.

However, Lily’s mommy knows that every lost dog has
a home of their own with people who miss them dearly. So Lily creates a
“Found Dog” poster about their fantastic day together. But what happens
if someone actually claims Doggy?


Get ready for a good laugh!  Silly Doggy is an adorable picture book with a charming story line and humorous pictures.  

Adam Stower came up with a beautiful story of a little girl that finds an escaped zoo bear in her backyard, thinks it’s a doggy, and adopts him for her own.  They have a wonderful time together until her mother tells her that someone is probably looking for Doggy, and will want him back.  

The illustrations are fantastic.  They are humorous, bright, and imaginative.  This is a very highly recommended book!

    I can feel the gooiness already. (to me that means an adorable and sentimental situation that)
    Her mother must be as sane as her daughter that she doesn't go crazy when she sees her daughter with a full grown bear 😛
    Highly recommended you say? I'll have to see if I can find it in my library or at least add it to my TBR (:
