    Wonderful, silly book -- with lessongs -- for kids & grownups to enjoy together!

    This book is so refreshingly different and funny, not at all treacly sweet. Chowder is a dog who is very different, and so are his owners. He can't make friends with other dogs because they think he's weird. So when he sees an ad for a petting zoo opening up at the local grocery store, he decides to make friends with the animals there. Even after an initial gaff, he doesn't give up. He's resourceful and inventive, and the other animals, who are impressed, respond by being helpful and inclusive. This is one of my 4 1/2 year-old daughter's favorite new books -- and mine! -- it's a fun read, especially if you pay attention to the visual jokes! Highly recommended.

    What a wonderful dog!

    I think Chowder is an absolutely adorable and much needed character exmaple. He shows that our differences make us unique and special. It is an important message to send to children. Especially to ever growing population of so-called personalities that teach kids that they should all be the same. Let us take our examples from something that cherishes our differences.
