The Cookie (Bean Dog and Nugget Book #2) by Charise Mericle Harper –ESSENTIAL

Harper, Charise Mericle The Cookie (A Bean and Nugget Book) 48 pgs. Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2013. $4.49.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

A little graphic novel featuring incredibly simple characters, Bean Dog and Nugget, having little conversations and incidents. In this book, the two of them argue about an invisible donut then about how to split a last cookie, everything coming to a awesome conclusion.

Wow, that was hard to describe. For the record, I am now officially obsessed with this author. I laughed out loud reading the hilarious banter between these two characters. This book is smart and witty while being totally silly and goofy!! I think students will love Nugget and Bean, relating to their friendship and their quirks. Told in a graphic novel format that is a great introduction to early readers.
