Bartelby is a very long and lovable dachshund who lives in a bookstore. He has a lovely set of friends who take him for walks through the city, but he has no idea that his bumbling backside leaves a trail of destruction and accidents behind him. Embarrassed that he has no control over his back end, Bartelby vows to never leave the cozy bookstore again. Can his friends help him find a way to help himself?
This beautifully illustrated picture book features silly fun along with an important message: that we love our friends not in spite of their flaws, but because of them.
I’m a sucker for dog books. They have always been my favorite types of stories ever since I first read Poky Little Puppy as a small child.
It’s a unique storyline that would appeal to young readers through elementary age. The illustrations are adorable and Bartleby the dog is absolutely precious. With lovable characters and amazing artwork, I would love to see this become a series. These whimsical illustrations are eye-catching and timeless. My daughter and I enjoyed reading about Bartleby’s escapades. I love to read more!
This adorable storyline teaches children about acceptance, thinking out of the box and friendship.
I love the solution the children came up with, but I felt it should have been written out instead. It was a little confusing to understand what was going on, trying to explain it was somewhat difficult. I don’t think she really cared about the solution either. It was still adorable nonetheless.
I highly recommend this book for young children. It’s a wonderful read-aloud book that’s funny and engaging.
