A Furry Fiasco by Paul Dubois Jacobs & Jennifer Swender -- ADVISABLE

A Furry Fiasco (Animal Inn #1) by Paul Dubois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender, illustrated by Stephanie Laberis.95 pags. CHAPTER BOOK. Aladdin (Simon & Schuster), 2016. Content: G.



The Animal Inn provides all sorts of services for a variety of pets; they offer boarding, grooming, lessons, and even birthday parties. But when the resident animals hear that the next guest will be a wizard with a dragon, they are in a tizzy. Can the inn survive such a visitor? More importantly, can the animals?

I had a great timing living vicariously through the animal characters in this story, and the inn itself made such a charming setting. Animal details sprinkled throughout educate without any preachiness and add further interest. The mystery of the new guest creates some fun suspense. A fun read, and a nice start to a new series.
