When there's a mystery, Honey Moon needs to solve it and she always goes where she's needed. When Honey hears howling during a stormy night in Sleepy Hollow, the town where it's Halloween all year round, she and her mother find a dog out in the storm. After looking after the dog for the night and christening her Stormy, they take her to the local animal shelter to give her the best chance at finding a forever home. Through this experience Honey comes up with the idea for a dog walking business to keep busy during the holidays and earn some money. Along with her best friend Becky, the business begins and throughout the book there are adventures with runaway dogs, mud puddles, a competition with Honey's arch nemesis, Clarice, and lots of fun along the way. Honey and Becky make a new friend, Isabela, who lives in a foster home. Isabela volunteers at the dog shelter and empathises with the dogs because she's also wanting to find her very own forever home. The first in a new series and a companion to the Harry Moon series, young girls will really connect with Honey Moon. She's quirky, is a loyal and trustworthy friend, and loves to have fun and help others. She wears her heart on her sleeve and is someone that you'd want your child to be friends with. This book subtly teaches children so many valuable lessons and values including responsibility, honesty, bravery, generosity, empathy, resilience, helping others and being a good friend. Throughout the book you hope, right along with Honey, that Stormy and Isabela both find their own forever homes. The illustrations by Becky Minor (based on the artwork of Christina Weidman) are perfect for the target audience. The use of an illustrated dog tag at the beginning of each chapter is a really cute but effective way of communicating something about the chapter's contents. I expect young girls to enjoy this book and want to continue reading about the new adventures Honey and her friends experience in subsequent books. I know I plan to continue reading the series. This book is both a fun read and a rewarding experience. Thank you very much to NetGalley, Rabbit Publishers and Diamond Book Distributors for the opportunity to read this book.

A fun, cute book. It is fast paced and has a unique writing style. I found the names of the Moon characters to be a little silly, but in a good way. I have to wonder if the author knew about the Harvest Moon game franchise when they named a character that. Also the three dogs named Manny, Moe and Jack made me laugh out loud. Did the author see a Pep Boys commercial and get inspired or was the names a 100% coincidence? Funny, none the less. I like how Honey is inspired to start a dog walking service after recusing Stormy. Honey seems to be a likeable character and I did enjoy how she got along with her family. I liked the hints that her Turtle backpack might be magical, or is it her imagination? I love the friendship between the three main girls and also how it ended with a possible 4th friend. One thing that I wish would be different is more description. There seemed to be a lot of telling instead of showing, which could make some of the story a little lackluster. However, I will admit there were several times where I find myself smiling. There is something going for it, and I hope the author continues to write stories for children and adults alike. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book.

Honey Moon Dog Daze was absolutely amazing! The writing was marvelous and the message was so wholehearted! The story was perfect and was becoming hard to put down the book! Be kind, be courageous, be honest, and best of yet Be Brave! Because Honey Moon teaches us that we are all UNIQUE!

Honey Moon is the name of the title character who is the sister of Harry (and Harvest) Moon. There are a number of books (at least 15) about Honey and siblings in this middle grade reader series. The writing is accessible and fun, the message is clean and wholesome without being preachy at all. My own kids are mostly grown up, but I could definitely imagine us having read this one as bedtime read together. In the fun narrative about Honey and friends setting up a summer business as dog walkers, there are more subtle messages about bullying, belonging, confidence, honesty, generosity, friendship, loyalty and being comfortable with who you are. If that sounds like a tall order for a short book, I can only reiterate that the gentle storyline presents fairly difficult philosophical messages without being preachy or monotonous. The art is whimsical and supports the story very well. I really enjoyed this book. Four and a half stars!
