Muddypaws' New Friends Review

As one Parragon Book Buddy's we have sent been a new book to have a look at: Muddypaws' New Friends written by Steve Smallman and illustrated by Simon Mendez.

We always enjoy getting new books to read, and this one with three furry dog friends on the cover looked very interesting. We of course got into reading it straight away to discover more about Muddypaws. A lively puppy, his best friend is Ben and they do everything together, except for when Ben has to go to school when Muddypaws has to stay at home. Then one day, Ben takes Muddypaws to school too - puppy school! At puppy school Muddypaws meets two other puppys Droopy and Patch who become his new friends and they have to learn to sit and fetch a sock. It is a lovely story about making new friends and holding on to old ones too.

Both of my boys have really enjoyed reading the story together, the pictures are beautifully illustrated and both boys love looking at pictures of animals. With my eldest having just started playschool last September we are now at the point where he is starting to make lots of new friends, and this book has helped me to draw out more about who is friends are, and what they do together. For my youngest he blew a kiss to Muddypaws and talked to him the whole way through the story. Whats nice about this story is that both my one and three year old both enjoyed it. The words are a big font size so I am looking forward to when my oldest starts reading and he can read it to himself.

Its a lovely story and makes a perfect story for reading before settling down for bed, and the puppies look so sweet, you will be hooked too as soon as you start reading it.

If you want to buy a copy you can here on Amazon MuddyPaws' New Friends. Or you could download a copy through iBooks here if you would prefer a digital version. Or if you want to find out more about other Muddypaws books (there are 5 in total) in the range you can here: MuddyPaws.

I was sent a copy of the book to review but all of the opinions are my own.
