Drummond, Ree. Charlie Plays Ball. Illustrated by Diane deGroat. PICTURE BOOK. Harper, 2015, $17.99.
Yes, the Pioneer Woman is an author too. In this book she writes about her ranch dog, Charlie. Charlie is a Bassett Hound who isn’t too motivated. He likes to be with people, but doesn’t like to work hard, which is not an easy accomplishment for a ranch dog. He’s well-loved and so the lack of productivity is overlooked in this family for sure. The pictures are bright and attractive and since the book is written from the perspective of the dog, it’s an interesting read.
