Unique picture book
What I Loved:
-The adorable Frankfurt- What this picture book does best is offer a truly adorable and humorous dog that picture book readers will love. The expressions and mannerisms are sure to remind readers of their own pets if they have any.
-The illustrations- Though the illustrations aren't typically what you might find in a picture book, their originality offers an interesting artistic style for kids (and adults) to take in. The colors are loud and fun, and the artist has a talent for capturing expressions.
What Left Me Wanting More:
-The story- Since this is a picture book, it feels odd to say the story takes a while to get going, but around halfway, I was still wandering when the issue of Frankfurt's name was going to come up. The majority of the story is explaining what a good relationship Frankfurt and his owner have, then the name problem seems to come towards the end.
While the story is a bit lacking, the unique illustrations and Frankfurt himself make this an enjoyable picture book. Highly recommended for: dog lovers and kids interested in different artistic expressions.
