The author did an outstanding job, I enjoyed it and I think that any child would love this story too.""Hooray for Ginormous Joe! What a great story. Pure love really does have redeeming/transforming properties doesn't it? I want to meet Ginormous Joe and give him a great big hug. Gorgeous illustrations!""A lesson in life for us all. I shall remember liswat. I know a beautiful large white dog just like Jo who listens and watches.""So real. Fires the imagination - makes you look at animals in a different light - waiting for books 3 and 4""A cute series that will appeal to kids and adults alike.""It will resonate with young readers, giving rise to some interesting conversations.""I really liked how sweet this story was. Not only does it showcase what a difference kindness can make (a lesson I think children should definitely learn, especially because bullying seems to be rampant nowadays), it also showcases that being "broken" or different isn't a bad thing. Joe learns that all he needs is love, patience, and kindness."
