Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Monroe
This graphic story is a little romp with two friends: Bean Dog, who looks like a bean and wears little shorts and Nugget, who is round, has a bow and wears a simple fringed skirt. The illustrations are as simple as that. No fancy backgrounds. No bright colors. The story, however, is a little more complex. Bean Dog is standing by himself. His eyes are closed. He looks like he is thinking very hard. From the thought bubbles, we get the idea he is trying to make himself disappear. Nugget comes along and wants her friend to play with her. Bean Dog tells her to be quiet. Nugget finds it very difficult to watch him just standing there with his eyes closed. She breaks down and tells him “If you hear anything, it will just be me eating this giant tasty donut all by myself.” Bean Dog quickly tells her he is done and gives her his attention. But, Nugget does not have a donut. Bean Dog is upset that Nugget lied to him. She tries to cover up the lie with another lie. “OK. I lied, but only a little bit. I didn’t eat the donut…It’s right here. It’s an invisible donut.” Nugget goes through a series of stunts; throwing up the invisible donut and catching. Trying to convince her friend that she is playing with an invisible donut. With all that jumping around both friends are hungry. Nugget goes to get a snack. Three cookies. Each can have one and the third cookie she cut in half, although not equally. There is a small piece and a large piece. Bean Dog outwits Nugget for the larger piece. It is clever and silly and just fun. Reviewer: Barbara Monroe; Ages 5 to 7.

Gr 2–4—Bean Dog and Nugget play a variety of good-spirited tricks on each other. In this book, Bean Dog says he'd like to know what it is like to be invisible so he asks Nugget to close her eyes-and then he eats the bigger half of the cookie they were about to share. The pages are well spaced and the vocabulary is easy enough for young readers. There is not much action from panel to panel, though, and the simple illustrations mean that each panel looks a lot like the one before it. The characters are not well defined-readers assume that Bean Dog is an anthropomorphized Hot Dog and Nugget is a nugget of some sort, but the childlike illustrations do not provide much insight. With the limited color palette and lack of action, this title relies entirely on dialogue to entertain.—Liz Zylstra, County of Prince Edward Public Library, Picton, Ontario

    Wow!  You hit the nail on the head with this new series Bean Dog

    Wow!  You hit the nail on the head with this new series Bean Dog and Nugget!  My son is 6 (just finishing up 1st grade) and he read both of them as soon as I handed them over to him.  Then the next day he brought them into school to share and ALL the kids went nuts over them.  He showed everyone his "favorite" parts and then he had to bring them home because they caused such a stir. He is begging for more!  It is so hard to find good reading at this level that also makes the kids laugh.  Thank you so much!  Bring on #3 & #4!
