The Bow-wow Bus by Jacobs and Swender - OPTIONAL

Jacobs, Paul Dubois and Jennifer Swender The Bow-wow Bus (Animal Inn #3).  112 pages. CHAPTER BOOK.  Illustrated by Stephanie Laberis. Aladdin (Simon & Schuster), 2017.  $5.99.  Content: G.

This book is told from the perspective of Coco, a Labrador retriever who lives at the Animal Inn.  The Inn is a spa and animal hotel run by the Tyler family that is the permanent home of Coco and six other pets.  In this book, Cassie Tyler’s first grade class comes to visit the Inn. One of the animals at the Inn is getting donated to her class, which has all the pets worried.

Although this is book number three in the series, I wasn’t lost not having read any of the previous books.  The book consists of 14 short chapters and an epilogue.  Almost every chapter has an illustration to accompany it.  Although I wasn’t wowed by this book, it will likely appeal to young, animal lovers.
