Berkley, A Nose Tale is a funny story about a dog who is a little different. Berkley is always sticking his nose where it does not belong. He is a beagle and basset hound mix, possessing the biggest sniffer in the litter. His nose, however, comes to use when a cat is lost and he ends up saving the day. This children’s story is educational as well as the illustrations were very well done. I felt as though the characters were popping out of the page. Everything looked colorful and intriguing. I particularly enjoyed how a possibly bad thing was used for something good. Teaching kids that something different does not necessarily mean wicked. The literature was suitable for children. Any parent searching for a children’s book that is both educational and fun would find this one suitable.
You meet Berkley the minute you pick up this book. You see him as an adorable puppy. What’s not to love? That big schnoz, those loveable eyes, ears that droop to the floor. So he has a big nose. Berkley’s nose helps him get to know the world around him. He sniffs everything, everywhere. Maybe Berkley shouldn’t explore skunk holes but if you have it, you might as well use it. Sometimes Berkley’s sniffing gets overzealous. Things fall and break. No worries. Berkley finds an opportunity to use his sniffer in a way that will warm your heart. Berkley’s nose is unique, uniquely wonderful. Favorite Line- “Wherever Berkley stuck his schnoz . . . BIG TROUBLE always followed.” Hillman’s illustrations are humorous and expressive. The emotion he’s able to capture through Berkley’s expressions makes Berkley real and endearing. He includes active, textured and true-to-life depictions. The different perspectives displayed add a humorous element to the text. In the opening pages, it’s as if Berkley is reaching his sniffer out to get a whiff of the reader.
